It is a great day when one of your clients is launching ground breaking innovation that will gain broad scale adoption and will be scalable to our everyday lives. In fact it is probably the best part of the job we have here at Horizn.
For us at Horizn the task of launching in innovation on behalf of our client is an everyday occurrence. Most of our clients are building some form of disruptive technology and use the Horizn Platform to get the word out, knowledge shared and product sold. We are fortunate to work with innovators everyday. But today is a really special day, if you are as obsessed with mobile innovation and disruptive technology as we are.
Today our clients Lenovo and Motorola have launched 2 new ground breaking innovative mobile device, the Moto Z with Moto Mods and the Lenovo Phab 2 PRO.
The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro
Lenovo’s PHAB2 Pro is the first commercial phone to use the mapping technology of Tango
Tango, as Google has now renamed it, combines a motion tracking camera with depth sensors to let users create a real-time map of their physical environment. It is a focused effort to understand space and movement and it has 3 core technologies inside of it.
- It has motion tracking, the ability to respond to subtle movements
- It has a depth sensor that allows us to see the floors and the walls
- And it has the ability to learn areas so it can recognize places it has been before
Using the Tango features, the Phab 2 Pro can map out a physical space, track objects, and project virtual effects in a real-world space. Lenovo is demonstrating the technology with a variety of apps, including virtual reality-style shooting games; an educational app, made in partnership with the American Museum of Natural History; and a domino app that lets you set up Rube Goldberg-like contraptions with virtual pieces.
