Google Tango

An augmented reality platform from Google for Android smartphones and tablets. Tango enables developers to create apps that overlay objects onto the real world. For example, while a virtual fantasy world can be brought into the living room, new furniture can also be envisioned. In 2016, Lenovo's Phab 2 Pro phone was the first to include Tango.
