Google Search gets realistic Jurassic World dinosaurs with AR

Published

on

Google users on mobile can now experience a realistic dinosaur in their own environment using the Google Search app. With this new experience, Google offers AR dinosaurs based on the movie Jurassic World to let users experience the extinct creatures in an entirely new way — and, of course, using the smartphones they already own.

Have you ever wondered what a Tyrannosaurus Rex would look like in your backyard? A Triceratops on your front porch? A Velociraptor on your dining room table? Now you can know using the augmented reality experience from Google. The company says it teamed up with Universal Brand Development, Ludia, and Amblin Entertainment for the Jurassic World tool.

The Google Search augmented reality experience includes a total of 10 dinosaurs from the Jurassic World universe. You’ll need a mobile device to access the dinosaurs, which can be found by first searching for the dino in Google Search, then tapping the ‘View in 3D’ option in the results.

Users can rotate the dinosaur and zoom in close to it, also projecting it into your own environment (digitally, of course) using the camera on your phone and augmented reality. Users on Android will also hear dinosaur roars and loud footsteps if they have the audio on their devices turned up.

The following dinosaurs are available through the mobile app experience:

– Tyrannosaurus Rex
– Velociraptor
– Triceratops
– Spinosaurus
– Stegosaurus
– Brachiosaurus
– Ankylosaurus
– Dilophosaurus
– Pteranodon
– Parasaurolophus

Fans can also check out this behind-the-scenes video that shows the work involved in creating one of these 3D digital dinosaur models:

Motorola Moto X30 Pro Will Have An Unusual Camera System

Published

on

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the Moto X30 Pro. The strangest thing about the model won’t be its unusually large camera sensor, especially since Xiaomi already claimed that crown. Instead, it will be the use of three focal lengths in the camera system that could mean the removal of one traditional part of that group.

Motorola’s Weibo account revealed that the Moto X30 Pro will have a 35mm focal point at its widest. This will be joined by a 50mm telephoto that could have a 2x magnification, as well as an 80mm longer telephoto option. If this is an accurate description, it would suggest that the phone will ditch the ultra-wide shooter in favor of two telephoto cameras when some of its peers opt to eschew telephoto cameras to make way for a macro alternative.

Whether this will give the Moto X30 Pro an actual advantage over other high-end phones this year remains to be seen, literally. It sounds almost like a mixed bag, at least in the camera department, though the rest of the rumored specs are on par for a 2022 flagship. The Moto X30 Pro, which could go by the name Motorola Frontier in global markets, is expected to run on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, bear a 6.67-inch 144Hz OLED screen, and boast 125W super-fast charging for its modest 4,500mAh battery.

How To Fix Amazon Prime Video Not Streaming In 4K

Published

on

Not all Amazon Prime Video titles are available in 4K quality. Older movies and shows often do not support that format, and even some newer flicks will still be unavailable for a variety of reasons ranging from licensing to technical difficulties. As a result, your title of choice might look less-than-perfect, not due to a fault on Amazon’s end, but simply because that title may not support 4K in the first place. 

Amazon has a list of titles available in 4K, so checking whether the one you’re trying to watch is, is fairly easy. You can see all the 4K offerings by heading over to the official Amazon website. The list is not very intuitive in the sense that you can’t check for specifics within the results as this is already a narrowed-down list. However, you can also simply type in the title of your movie or show into the search bar above to check whether it’s available on Prime Video and in 4K.

You can also search directly on Amazon Prime Video. Any variation of “4K,” “4K movies ultra HD,” “4K film,” or even something more specific like “4K romantic comedies” should produce a list of titles that you can watch right now. If you managed to locate your title on one of these lists and yet it still looks underwhelming, there may be other issues at hand.
