Asus ZenFone AR


Augmented reality features

To qualify as a Tango-enabled smartphone, the Asus ZenFone AR features a set of sensors and "computer vision" software that gives it the ability to interpret images, videos, space and motion like humans. Tango adds three new abilities to ZenFone AR: motion tracking, depth perception and area learning. Through these capabilities, Zenfone AR can detect how far it is away from a floor, wall or an object and understand where it is moving in three- dimensional space. AR is a rapidly growing segment for mobile technology and one where consumers are extremely excited about. To date, there are already over 30 apps on Google Play that are Tango compatible. Asus and Google are also partnering with well-known brands to bring the Tango AR experience to customers.
