Lenovo Tapping Google’s Project Tango for First Smartphone
The World’s First Project Tango Enabled device is coming soon for consumer.
Shindig its way into the smartphone market done by computer tech company Lenovo, along with Google. Lenovo had the lid off schemes for its first consumer mobile device at CES 2016 in Las Vegas this week. The device with the Project Tango is being developed by the company in collaboration with Google. The company is planning to roll out the smartphone this summer.
Today’s hypercompetitive smartphone and tablet industries, we should surely take innovation risks, it’s the only way to truly alter the way people use mobile technology,” said by Chen Xudong, senior vice president and president of the Business Group at Lenovo, in a statement.
Who will Argue?
some would argue with that premise. The question is can Lenovo innovate or is this only a risky turn that’s bound to be failure in a smartphone world dominated by Nokia, Samsung and Apple?
Xudong said the company can find a shelf with Google on its own side. He also said Lenovo and Google is working across mobile hardware and software” both and added that the companies’ roled vision that will “make a more holistic product.”
Main question is how. There’s nothing circumstantially unique about the innards of the smartphone itself. A Qualcomm Snapdragon processor powers it, but what is unique is how the processor turns the screen into a “magic window” which displays information and objects onto the real world for 3-D experiences, according to Lenovo. Google, and Lenovo — are working hard to pull off the concept.
Blending Virtual and Real Worlds:
Project Tango is the brainchild of google. It’s a technology platform that taps into three features to create on-screen 3D experiences: motion tracking, depth sensing and advanced computer vision to experience environment.
Project Tango keep faith on the synergy of hardware and software to make it happen for the smartphone to react to a user’s every act. This means when they go ahead or backward or lean side to side, their phones track and react likewise.
The smartphone will mix the virtual world and the real world. Project Tango lead at Google, put it this way: “The smartphone becomes a glamor window into the main world by enabling it to perceive space and motion that goes beyond the boundaries of a touch screen.”
Making an App Ecosystem:
Devices featuring Project Tango can also remember and identify locations users have already visited before, whether public settings or places in the their own houses. Project Tango takes geo-standard location a step further to GPS, working indoors so users can find their way through shopping malls or even locate target items in stores.
Project Tango devices are able to capture the dimensions of any room in 3D, Trying measurements that could help users shop for furniture or decorations. Pricing on the device has not been unfolded.
Applications come through smartphone apps. App developers can be creative, transforming their homes into sports levels or creating “magical windows” into virtual and augmented climate. Google is acting hard to get developers on board to build up the Project Tango app ecosystem, serving the possibility of attracting funding or having their apps featured on the new Lenovo smartphone.
