Pokemon Go has had a wonderful run by pulling people of all ages into the new concepts of Augmented Reality. What it had done was to map the places according to GPS location of the mobile and throw characters to catch along the map so that users, when moving around with their mobiles were able to get to the places as mentioned on the game.
But Google has launched its new Depth Sensing Project Tango Mobile. The mobile is loaded with sensors and cameras which will use Depth Sensing to bring Augmented Reality to a next level.
Google recently launched Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, the new Google Tango based mobile. The Tango was part of Google’s Advanced Technologies and Projects Division (ATAP), which say last year came out with its own set of apps and motion games which are released for depth sensing based mobiles.
can catch a lot of those on the google site:
Few of the apps created for Tango Augmented Reality which catches the users attention at first is the Measure App. this app enables the mobile to be the Measuring Tape in your house.
Another Game app which looks plays exactly as the Pokemon but with Zombies and uses live video instead of live maps is the Crayola Color Blaster. The game is about Zombies creaping up your space and eating away the colors in your area and you have to blast the zombies with color. The gameplay uses augmented reality and depth sending together so you get the feeling of live scenario gameplay.
I hope they dont nring this to FPS games.. 😛
Apart from these, Tango is proven to provide real time visualized guide and tour in museums and some home improvement projects.
The new wave of VR and AR are bringing in ideas and interfaces which will start to redo all the things we do in a completely different dimension altogether.
if you get hands on with AR and VR let us know more, here.
See ya soon..
