Google adds new creepy (and cute) 3D AR creatures just in time for Halloween

Frightful times have fallen, and Google is getting into the swing of things with an array of special Halloween-themed 3D animals and objects. From a witchy cat wearing a pointy hat to a skeleton getting jiggy with it, summoning up some October thrills is now simply a search away.

Halloween may be a time to get kooky, but Google knows that cute animals are always in fashion. Three critters have gotten monstrous makeovers: the black cat dons a pointed magical hat, the German Shepherd gets a more piratical appearance (though it was probably already searching for buried booty), and the weiner dog is wearing, well, a weiner costume. To pull these cute and creepy creatures up for yourself, just do a Google search for “cat”, “German Shepherd”, or “hot dog” on your mobile device.

If animals in costumes aren’t doing it for you, Google has a few more tricks up its sleeve: a classic sheet ghost, a set of jack o’ lanterns, and a skeleton whose dancing might be the scariest thing I’ve seen all October. To get a look for yourself, search for “ghost”, “jack o lantern”, and “human skeleton.”

Like other objects in Google’s 3D AR collection, these new additions can be viewed in your own space, as well as experienced in 3D virtually — there’s even fun soundtrack accompaniment. And for an extra bit of lulz, you can capture photos and videos of the creatures as they move around your location. 👀
