Google’s new AR experiment conjures up portals on the other side of the planet

2021, and the coronavirus pandemic is still looming in large numbers, so our travel plans to exotic destinations will have to wait. But fortunately, we can virtually travel through magical AR portals.

Google’s new experiment called Floom creates vortices in your room that will let’s see what’s on the other side of the world, literally.

Here’s how it works. Go to the Floom page in Chromeon on your Android device. After approval of the necessary permits, point the camera at an empty space on the floor. You may need to take a short walk to make it work.
