  Pennsylvania's colorful 'Graffiti Highway' is being shut down for good Pennsylvania's "Graffiti Highway," an abandoned stretch of road that's become an unofficial tourist attraction, is being covered with truckloads of dirt to discourage trespassers. © Provided by CNN This abandon stretch of Pennsylvania road has been nicknamed the "Graffiti Highway."

Who wouldn’t want a dinosaur in their living room? If you search for one of ten species on Google, you can tap “View in 3D” on your mobile device to open up an augmented reality version of the beasts and have them superimposed -- at scale -- in your surroundings.

You’ll be able to bring some of the more well-known dinosaurs into your home or yard, including Velociraptor, Triceratops and, of course, Tyrannosaurus Rex. Ludia -- the developer that created the Jurassic World Alive game -- says that its team of artists thoroughly researched each species and consulted with paleontologists and the Jurassic World team to create the models.

While this is a movie tie-in, it’s good to see Google turning it into an educational one. Knowledge of dinosaurs tends to be inversely proportional to one’s age, so this should be entertaining and enlightening for both kids and adults.
