AR/VR: Google Releases Three “WebXR Experiments”
WebXR brings together AR and VR on the web to make them more convenient and widely accessible.
Three Experiences Now Available For Supported Android Devices
Sodar helps to visualize social distancing. By activating a personal augmented reality radar from your browser, you can see what six feet (or two meters) looks like in any environment.
With Measure Up, you can calculate the length, area and volume of the things around you without using a tape measure.
Floom is a fun new way to explore the planet, built with WebXR and Google Maps. Open your browser to tunnel through the earth and see what’s on the other side.
And coming soon, Picturescape turns your Google Photos library into an immersive gallery so you can explore your memories in augmented reality.
