You can already have fun tiger or turtle at home, thanks to Google search. But now this same principle is about to become much more scientific. You can now search for subjects like the circulatory system, animal cells and museum objects and see them in augmented reality.

Thanks to the update, you can forget about trying to build a replica of cell structures and mitochondria with papier mache, just search for it in Google. Once you see the result, press the “Display in 3D” button, then “Display in your space”. With certain objects, like the mitochondria, you can get an X-ray view for a complete understanding.

Other objects, like an Apollo 11 spacesuit, you can place in your home to create a virtual museum. Google has partnered with Visible Body and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum to create the new AR options.

When you combine it with the recent deployment of Google to record AR videos on Android phones, creating science lessons for your kids at home has become much easier.
