Lenovo + Project Tango
Google's Project Tango and Lenovo are partnering to create the world's first smartphone powered by Project Tango technology. The device, which will allow users to experience the world in ways never before possible through a smartphone, will launch in Summer 2016.
What is Project Tango?
Project Tango combines 3D motion tracking with depth sensing to give your mobile device the ability to know where it is and how it moves through space. With Project Tango, developers can create applications that explore physical space around the user, including precise navigation without GPS, windows into virtual 3D worlds, measurements of spaces, and games that know where they are in the room and what’s around them.

“With the capabilities brought to the table by Project Tango, we're expecting a completely new era of AR and VR that actively infuses digitally created models with actual physical realities.”
