Now and then Hollywood plays a moment where two (or more) films come in about the same time, most recently with the release of dueling of Fyre Festival documentaries.
Increased reality has a similar moment right now, with Google's Arts & Culture department publishing a new Big Bang AR experience based on research from the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) arriving about two months after the AR function from New York Times profiled Large Hadron Collider Google
Instead of packing everything in Google The Arts and Culture app published the Google experience in the Big Bang AR app for iOS and Android, both of which were presented as part of the Google Arts and Culture event on Tuesday in Washington, DC.
To start the AR experience, users are asked to hold a hand in front of their smartphone camera, make a fist, then slowly open it to activate the virtual Big Bang. The story of the mongoose takes place in five chapters, which are told by actress Tilda Swinton, who is obviously distinguished by narrative trippy animated sequences, based on this app and her first scene in Doctor Strange .
As history progresses, users can interact with the particles and atoms as they form and explore the universe as it develops in front of the eyes. Users can also capture photos of the experience throughout the trip. At the end of the story, users can take a selfie filtered through a celestial cloud.
"One of CERN's mission is to educate and engage people from all over the world with science and technology. With this app we hope to reach new audience groups and share all the history of our universe's origins in an inspiring way," says Charlotte Warakaulle , CERN International Relations Director, in a statement.
The Google Arts and Culture team has become a proven foundation for AR education education, including the Pocket Gallery, a virtual museum host for Johannes Vermeer and Art Projector, an AR camera showing famous artwork in user space
In addition, Google has been on a bit of an AR role across the board recently with new apps for Android P artner Walk at MWC and ARCore Elements for the release of ARCore 1.7, the arrival of Childish Gambino Playmoji for the Google Pixel Playground app and the beginning of alpha testing for AR navigation in Google Maps.
With the annual game developer conference (which served as a showcase for the Google Maps API and ARCore last year) just around the corner and Google I / O (and probably the next major update of ARCore), In May, Google's AR hits will probably continue .
