Google never runs out of innovation, although they gave up on the Project ARA which was a sweet concept of bringing modularity in smartphones, they have other projects up their sleeves. Project Tango being one of the most awaited projects from Google, will allow smartphones to see Augment objects in the real world via smartphones. Lenovo Phab 2 Pro will be the first smartphone to come with a depth-sensing camera which will utilize this feature.
The depth sensing camera maps the physical space, tracks its position and other objects in the room. Project Tango sets out to give the same experience as in the Microsofts HoloLens, but instead of a VR headset, you’ll be looking through a smartphone’s screen.
Uses of Project Tango:
- Measure our surrounding with 3D tools and then re-imagine them with virtual furniture, appliances and more.
- Bring Virtual objects into your room from toys to planets to pets and play with them like they’re actually there.
- Navigate stores, museums and other indoor locations with directions overlaid onto our surroundings.

Project Tango is a big leap in the smartphones technology, the internet that was supposed to bring the world to our homes will be a real thing with this innovation. If this thing gets big, it’ll completely change the way we use our smartphones. Looking at the recent turn of events, the future really seems to be full of VR and AR’s.
