Ever wondered exactly what you'd see if you succeeded in a quest to dig a hole through to the Earth's core to the other side of the world? Google's new AR tool is here to show you just that. We appreciate Google's commitment to helping us procrastinate more successfully, and this core-some offering is certain to wile away a couple of minutes (perhaps even more if you've got kids).

Called Floom, the experiment asks you to point your device at the floor, tap the tornado icon and you'll be offered a tantalising glimpse of what you'd encounter if you emerged on the other side of the globe. To spend more time with Google's entertaining tools, try out some fun Google Easter eggs, and to make your own great user experience, head to these UI design tools.
