Google's Tango Project Makes Museums Engaging With Augmented Reality
Google's AR Project Tango has stepped up and has brought a new life to the augmented reality platform Tango. Google has made the decision to partner with a number of museums around the world. The first one being the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA). Google is now offering visitors Tango-enabled devices, which can be used to explore exhibits in augmented reality.
More About The Google AR's Platform Tango
At the DIA, the visitors can request for the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro from the front desk and use it to experience and step into the world of augmented reality and know more on the various artifacts. The first Tango enabled smartphone can peer inside sarcophagi to reveal the mummies bodes and have a much closer look to it, to visualize the lost architecture like the six-story Babylonian Ishtar Gate and restore the original bright color of the ancient limestone's.
Apart from the visualizations feature, the device also provides some fun games to do features such as puzzles and games. The platform aims to offer much immersive experience from the screen of a mobile phone and all the credit goes to apps like Pokemon GO, which has made this tech possible earlier. Advanced sensors are also a part of the phone that are used to map depth and scale allowing digital overlays to be applied more accurately to 3D surfaces.
What More To Expect?
The results until now are positive and engaging for a museum, but overall it still needs a lot to be done to make it a more efficient piece of technology. For now, only two smartphones, the Lenovo Phab 2 and the Asus ZenPhone AR, that were announced last week at CES 2017 have this feature on-set. Thus, for this to be a more universal experience, users would require more smartphones supporting the AR platform Tango such that it becomes much convenient for them.
