Google adds popular Japanese characters to its AR search, like a Pac-Man, Hello Kitty, Gundam mechs, and more

Google has added a lot of popular Japanese characters to its AR feature in mobile search, which has recently featured animals, historical artifacts, and dinosaurs. The list of characters is taken from Japanese pop culture including anime, TV, and video games, with names like Pac-Man, Hello Kitty, mechs from Evangelion and Gundam, and more. The feature works on Google search on Android and the iOS Google application.

At the point when you enter the characters’ names, you’ll see an characters’ names the main search result, and that will allow you to drop a 3D model into your camera view. The models can show up at different degrees of scale, with a option to render at life size, however they don’t know how quite how accurate those measurements. They was under the feeling that Hello Kitty was five apples tall, for instance, yet she towered over my work area when they gave it a shot.

The full list of characters is here:

  • Ultraman
  • Ultraman Zero
  • Ultraman Belial
  • Gomora
  • Evangelion (EVA-01 Test Type)
  • Gundam (Odysseus Gundam, Xi Gundam, Penelope)
  • Cogimyun
  • The drums from Taiko no Tatsujin
  • Pac-Man
  • Pompompurin
  • Minimal Twin Stars

Google says that Pac-Man is by far the most searched-for character out of the list, with more than twice however many searches concerning Hello Kitty at #2. Evidently, the top country for Pac-Man searches is Peru.
