Google is putting a bunch of iconic Japanese characters in Search as augmented reality objects you can interact with. The tech giant is giving you the chance to bring 14 well-known characters from anime, video games, and TV shows into your environment, including Pac-Man and Hello Kitty. Apparently, Pac-Man remains the most searched for the animated icon on Google, especially (for some reason) in Peru. His global search interest is more than double that of the second most searched character, Hello Kitty.
In addition to these two, you can also summon Ultraman, Evangelion, and Gundam robots and Little Twin Stars characters into your space. Like Google’s other AR objects, they can be scaled up or down depending on the actual surface you place them on. All you have to do to access them is run a search for the character you want on Google on mobile, find their AR map in the results, and tap “View in 3D” to see them in your space.
On Android devices, you can run the search on the Google app or on any Android browser, as long as the phone supports ARCore. Meanwhile, Apple users can view Pac-Man, Hello Kitty, and the other characters in their space through the Google app on devices running iOS 11 or higher.
