What’s new from Asus at CES 2017 ? Well, it’s the Asus ZenFone AR With 8GB RAM


At the ongoing CES 2017 tech expo, Asus has launched the ZenFone AR smartphone with 8GB RAM, which also supports Google’s Tango augmented reality programme and DayDream virtual reality software. Now that sounds interesting  ssince this is the second offering in the smartphone industry for AR after the Tango enables Lenovo Phab 2 Pro.

What differentiates the Zenfone Ar from the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro ?

ZenFone AR is the world’s first 5.7-inch smartphone with Tango and Daydream by Google. Tango is an exciting new augmented reality (AR) technology that changes the way you interact with the world and expands your vision. And with Daydream, you can experience high-quality, immersive virtual reality (VR) with your phone. evidently, the Lenovo doesn’t come shipped in with DayDream.

What exactly is Tango ?

Tango is a set of sensors and computer vision software that gives ZenFone AR the ability to understand space and motion like humans do, which gives ZenFone AR augmented reality capabilities that feel positively futuristic. Tango adds motion tracking, depth perception, and area learning capabilities to ZenFone AR, so it can understand its motion as it moves through an area, detect how far way it is from the floor, walls, and objects, and see and remember the key visual features of a physical space in three-dimensional space.

What’s so special about the TriCam system offering in the Zenfone AR ?

ZenFone AR is equipped with the innovative TriCam system consisting of three rear cameras — a motion tracking, depth sensing, and high-resolution 23MP camera — that enable the phone to a create a three-dimensional model of its surroundings and track its motion, so it can see the world just like you do. The motion tracking camera lets ZenFone AR track its location as it moves through space. The depth sensing camera with an infrared (IR) projector lets ZenFone AR measure its distance from real-world objects. The high-resolution 23MP camera lets you view virtual objects in your actual environment in stunning detail. Together with Tango, ZenFone AR delivers engaging augmented reality experiences for you to explore and enjoy.
