Pakistan Observer - - ECONOMY WATCH - STAFF RE­PORTER

IS­LAM­ABAD—Len­ovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) to­day launched the much an­tic­i­pated PHAB2Pro– the world’s first Tango-en­abled smart­phone to en­able aug­mented re­al­ity ex­pe­ri­ences – plus the dual-cam­era PHAB2 Plus and full-sized PHAB2 smart­phones.

Un­like any other phone, the PHAB2 Pro, pow­ered by Tango tech­nol­ogy–a set of sen­sors and soft­ware from Google that senses and map­sits sur­round­ings–makesa host of cut­ting-edge smart­phone aug­mented re­al­ity (AR)ex­pe­ri­ences pos­si­ble. For ex­am­ple, us­ing AR apps, stu­dents can place true-to-scale vir­tual di­nosaurs in their class­rooms and en­hance their learn­ing through AR data over­lays that ap­pear while they walk around the crea­tures.

AR gam­ing ex­pe­ri­ences let you play vir­tual domi­nos on your kitchen ta­ble, raise a dig­i­tal pet in your bed­room and fight back swarms of aliens in­vad­ing your house. With Tango tech­nol­ogy the PHAB2 Pro can even be­gin to change the way peo­ple think about map­ping in­door spa­ces to cre­ate new ex­pe­ri­ences like fu­ture aug­mented re­al­ity mu­seum tours via the GuidiGO app.
