An augmented reality (AR) professional 3D printed a full-scale Velociraptor for his daughter and brought it to life (virtually). A video shared on Twitter by Florent Germain shows the results of this fun experiment. Jermaine tweeted on October 20, “Last month, I 3D printed a full scale Velociraptor for my daughter. Then, I went with the Vuforia model target to enhance it in AR so she could see how it looked. looks, and how big or small its Velociraptorinae relatives were.”

The video shows how Velociraptor was brought to life using some software application. Extinct dinosaurs were completely taken out. Actually, her eyes can be seen moving in the clip. The AR tool not only brought to life the 3D-printed skeleton, but also provided a visual comparison in the proportions of Velociraptor and other related species such as Deinonychus antirrhopus, Microraptor zoanos and Eutaraptor ostromesi.

Germain added a tweet to the thread and mentioned the software he used. “3D model of the skeleton by Inhuman Species on Cults3D. The feathered dino was sculpted in Blender,” he wrote.

According to the Twitter thread, Germain also plans to submit this AR creation to a PaleoArt competition.

One user (@Harrison_kade) commented on the post recommending this type of technology for museum display.

Germain also said that AR will make it easier to update to new sound data in this regard.

Here’s what another user (@VRmaninJapan) said about the amazing creation.

Another curious user (@clairemation) asked if the files were up for sale.
