Google showed off a new 3D model viewer called Article in a recent blog post. The post details how the viewer can be embedded in any mobile website, allowing smartphone users to pull an image directly from the a browser and display it in front of them in augmented reality.

A smartphone user will have to look for a small AR button located at the bottom right of an image on a website. Tapping on it activates Article and causes the user’s display to switch to the device’s camera. When the a user locates a good spot, they can tap to transport the image into the view in front of them.

Google describes this project as a prototype has invited developers to play around with the program and make their own models.
