Google’s Tango (formerly Project Tango) is certainly a cool concept, and it’s been making a ton of improvements throughout the last few years. Certain forms of augmented reality can be done with pretty much any Android device with a camera, but Tango takes AR to a completely new level with 3D sensors and chips that can track motion in a 3D space and make a depth map of a room. With the announcement of the Tango-enabled Lenovo PHAB2, Google has released three new videos showcasing its power.
The first video is the longest and shows two kids exploring different parts of their house and going to a museum. After that, the video shows them doing the same activities but using Tango to enhance their experience.
The second video sets the scene as the mom is remodeling her daughter’s room and showcases arguably the most intensive demo of showing a bed in an empty room while they are remodeling.
The third video is a father-daughter team using Tango to make a table top dominos augmented reality game using Tango’s ability to receive depth information, making for a smooth experience.
