Summary (IA Generated)

Google’s new experiment called Floom creates vortexes in your room that’ll let you see what’s on the other side of the globe, literally.

Google’s experimental Floom Portal.

You can tilt your phone to change the direction of the tunnel, and the app will build a new portal that takes you to a different destination on the globe.

Here’s how the Floom portal looks on your floor.

This new app is built on the WebXR platform, which aims to deliver VR and AR experiences on multiple devices, including phones, desktop computers, and specialized headsets.

Apart from Floom, Google has launched a bunch of other WebXR experiments such as a measurement app (with support for volume and area calculations), and a virtual social distancing radar.

Currently, Floom just works on Chrome for Android —  sorry iPhone users, you’re out of luck.
