For several years, tech fans have been aware of Google‘s Project Tango, which gives mobile devices abilities to sense depth and motion that were previously impossible. But it’s taken until now for a smartphone company to actually use the technology for a consumer product. It’s the Lenovo Phab2 Pro smartphone, coming to a future near you.
The Lenovo Phab2 Pro smartphone will be able to do things that seem like magic even in today’s tech-saturated world through augmented reality. Objects and distances can be measured instantly, and you can (for example) place virtual furniture in an empty room while redecorating or moving, or place guideposts over your environment as you tour a museum.
You can see Project Tango in action in the video below, to give you an idea of the kind of thing the Lenovo Phab2 Pro will be able to do once it hits store shelves this September, priced at $500. And for more information on the phone, you can read up on it right here.
