Google will stop the support for the AR-based Project Tango in favour of the AR Kit to narrow down the AR platforms offered by Google. The end of Project Tango comes as Google focuses on ARCore to build AR apps and games for Android devices.
The reason behind Google dropping support for Project Tango is ARCore.
Samsung announces Notebook 9 (2018) with Notebook 9 Pen
The Pen model has the fewest ports of the line-up, including one USB-C port, one USB 3.0 port, an HDMI port, and a microSD port. They also include the "largest and most powerful battery " Samsung has ever placed in a notebook, weighing in at 75 Wh.
The Project Tango team tweeted, "We're turning down support for Tango on March 1, 2018". Earlier this year, it unveiled ARCore, an augmented reality platform that differs from Tango in that it doesn't require any specialized hardware. "Thank you to our incredible community of developers who made such progress with Tango over the last three years. We look forward to continuing the journey with you on ARCore", a Google spokeswoman told ZDNet.
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. ARCore does not need special sensors to function, and works with current smartphone hardware and cameras, with machine learning taking care of the workload for the most part.
Remains found in Montana may be three missing MI boys
The boys' father, John Skelton, was sentenced in 2011 to 10 to 15 years in prison for unlawful imprisonment. Authorities are awaiting additional testing to determine if the remains belong to the missing brothers.
While Project Tango requires specialized hardware in a smartphone like special cameras and sensors, ARCore doesn't need any of that, as it relies exclusively on software. We got a glimpse of just what people will be able to do with ARCore with this week's Android Oreo 8.1 update, which added AR stickers to the Camera app on Google's Pixel phones. But Google clearly wants to make those experiences available to more users, which means moving on from Tango. While devices that ran on Project Tango were released as recently as past year, it wasn't quite as successful as ARCore is expected to be.
