Lenovo Phab 2 Pro with Google Tango: Augmented Reality is Rad

There’s a reason this phone is so big. There are a crazy number of cameras and sensors on the back which radically improve the phone’s ability to track objects in space and overlay features to the camera view.

Motion tracking in virtual reality is all the rage right now, but that still requires sensors and beacons to be installed in areas where you’ll be using it. VR becomes a pretty solitary experience, as you’re keeping your head and face covered. Though it’s early days for augmented reality, we can already see a lot of potential for collaborative services and games. True AR could impact nearly every app and service we currently use on our mobile devices.

It’s like holding the future, or interacting with some kind of crazy Terminator vision. Here’s our first dive into the wonders of Augmented Reality using Google’s Tango on the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro!
