The ZenFone AR is the first phone that’s Tango-friendly and Google Daydream Ready. Tango is an exciting new augmented reality (AR) technology that changes the way we interact with the environment. Additionally, with Daydream, you can experience high-quality, immersive virtual reality (VR) with your phone. Tango is a set of sensors and computer vision software that gives ZenFone AR the ability to process space and motion imitating human vision, which gives ZenFone AR augmented reality capabilities.
Tango features in Asus ZetaPhone AR:
Mapping—Tango can create digital 3D maps of our surroundings, and memorize them. Then, based on the memorized landmarks, it can figure out where your phone is (and even its orientation) compared to those landmarks.
See the world in 3D—when you take a photo with a normal camera, the shots are flat. With two cameras, and a time-of-flight sensor, the camera sees depth as well. You know how far away objects actually are.
Virtual objects on top of the real world—your phone knows precisely where it is in space and which direction it’s facing.
