When the Zootopia teaser trailer launched at the end of last month, the resulting tech-Pixar parody crossover of ‘Zoogle Photos’ was pretty entertaining but now Google has put cameras inside pens at the LA Zoo to capture selfies of the animals.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
While using motion-activation equipment strapped to a Nexus 5X to capture a snap isn’t a sure-fire way to get a good shot, the setup is doing a surprisingly good job of snapping interesting shots of the animals – particularly that mean-looking tiger or incredibly relaxed sloth.
That’s a sloth, right?
The project opened publicly yesterday, but you can see all the images captured so far in the Zoogle Selfies shared Photos folder. I can only imagine there will be a whole lot more over the coming days and weeks.
