Google shutting down Project Tango in March 2018

Google shutting down Project Tango in March 2018

"We're turning down support for Tango on March 1, 2018", the tweet read.

The news of Tango's demise comes at the same time as Google releases developer preview 2 for ARCore. The tech giant will cease support of Tango in March 2018, focusing its efforts on ARCore instead. With ARCore's launch, Tango seemed pretty much dead in the water since the new platform will bring augmented reality to more phones with less hardware. "Thank you to our incredible community of developers who made such progress with Tango over the last three years".

The laptop also comes with S Pen, which can recognize 4096 levels of pressure and comes with a tip of 0.7mm thickness. Along with the new processor, Samsung says it added its "largest and most powerful battery placed inside a notebook".

Project Tango was initially announced in 2014, which enables the smartphone or tablet powered by this hardware will feature the ability to generate 3D pictures and objects in the real-life 3d Space. "We look forward to continuing the journey with you on ARCore". All ARKit-ready apps require is an iPhone running iOS 11 and an A9 processor - there's no need for speciality hardware as even 2015's iPhone 6s and last year's iPhone SE can run apps built with ARkit. While it did make it to a handful of consumer devices and developer kits, its lack of mainstream attention or support from too many manufacturers meant that it didn't generate too much interest. While devices that ran on Project Tango were released as recently as a year ago, it wasn't quite as successful as ARCore is expected to be. Later it came with the Lenovo Phab Pro and Asus Zenfone AR. ARCore already made its way to the Pixel and Pixel 2 smartphones in August this year, opening AR features to consumers immediately. Unlike many other ideas, like the oh-so environmentally-friendly Project Ara, at least Tango is getting succeeded by Google's own ARcore.
