Google brings AR lions and tigers and bears to Search If you want to see how much space a pug would take up in your studio before committing to one, you can now search "pug" on your Google-based mobile web browser to gain access to a result that says "View in 3D." When tapped, you'll be given a 3D model of the animal, which you can turn, flip, and rotate. However, if you want to see one "live" in your apartment, you can tap "View in your space." The camera application will then open, Google will advise you on how to calibrate your device, and then a pug -- with realistic mannerisms -- will appear to scale right on the floor ahead of you via the lens.

They won despite star pivot Beauden Barratt mysteriously pulling out of the starting line-up just before the kick-off, in an unexplained withdrawal.

Shaun Reynolds, preferred as starting flyhalf to Springbok Elton Jantjies, kicked over a penalty to put the Lions ahead at 10-7 after 20 minutes but it was the last time the hosts would have their noses in front.
