Have a zoo in your front room, through Google VR: 

  • Start with a standard Google search for your favourite animal on your smartphone or tablet.
  • Scroll down until you find a new white box that says “Meet a life-sized [animal] up close.” with an animation of said animal under the wikipedia info.
  • Click on the little “view in 3D” icon to the left of the animal within the box.
  • At this point your screen will change like a pop-out window.
  • You’ll need to wiggle your phone about a bit until the animal appears
