Google adds creepy crawlies to its AR search results


If you ever want to invite giant beetles or horns to your living room without any fear, Google has you covered. The search giant is adding 23 creepy crawlies to its growing roster of augmented reality search results including dinosaurs, cats, scorpions, bears, tigers, and more.

The complete list of insects includes: rhinoceros beetle, hercules beetle, atlas beetle, stag beetle, giant stag, miyama stag beetle, shining ball scarab beetle, jewel tattle, ladybug, firefly, firefly Rosalia Betsy, Butterfly Butterfly, Morpho Butterfly, Atlas Moth, Mantis, Grasshopper, Dragonfly, Hornet, Strong Cicada, Brown Cicada, Periodic Cicada, Walker Cicada, and Evening Cicada.

You will be able to view AR worms by searching for the insect’s name and selecting the “View in 3D” option. Android users will also be able to listen Worms, if you want to hear the startling buzzing buzzing next to you. You’ll need ARCore-supported devices on Android, or iOS 11 and up devices on the iPhone and iPad side.

If you’re feeling particularly brave, you can also pose for a selfie with the critters. I broke my first computer desk away from an actual moth, so I’m sure you’ll have plenty of room around you for these AR creatures if you run regularly and hide from insects like I do.
