Lenovo’s Tango Phone: A Preview of AR for the Masses | Tech.pinions - Perspective, Insight, Analysis

Coming soon to a Lowes near you

"Project Tango officially graduated beyond the project stage with the PHAB2 Pro announcement. The technology, initially available to developers in a tablet-based kit, uses multiple on-board cameras and sensors to enable three core technologies: motion tracking, depth perception, and area learning. In other words, the device knows where it is, what is around it, and when it moves within this space. In its early incarnations, many people referred to the technology as handheld virtual reality but that description always bothered me as VR, by definition, should be fully immersive and a handheld device—no matter how good—is never going to offer that. Lenovo wisely calls the PHAB2 Pro an AR device, a more accurate description and one that has substantially more potential."
