Project Tango: Are you ready to change the way you use your phone?

Project Tango brings augmented reality to your smartphone, including gaming, navigation, and other utilities. It enables you to do things never imagined, from indoor mapping your way around a museum to creating a 3D gaming environment to visualizing how a new refrigerator fits into your kitchen. Armed with Tango's technology, developers will use motion tracking, area learning, and depth perception to create apps never before possible. How will augmented reality enhance your experiences? Share what innovative ideas you'd like to see enabled through Project Tango.

Re: Project Tango: Are you ready to change the way you use your phone?

Wow - just briefly thinking about this gives me tons of ideas - if I have a device that has location and full 3D perception I get do many really cool things. A Project Tango implementation would need to meet at least some of the following business requirements:

 

Competitive differentiation

AR integration into existing visualisation solutions

Enhance the UX

Reduce the skills and training requirements for field services

Reduce the costs of providing product samples, shipping

 

Let me give you a few examples based on different industries:

Retail and Distribution

Inventory Tracking and Barcode scanning (PT has faster focus due to spacial awareness)

Catalog AR Furniture

Virtual Apparel Fitting

Share of shelf evaluation

Product Placement Evaluation

Grocery list AR Stor Map

Jewellery Appraisal 3D

Florist Virtual Flowers

Known issue used car visualisation

AR pre delivery checklist

Roll damage documentation

Transportation space calculation

Shoe size measurment

 

Healthcare and Life Sciences

Aging in Place monitoring (Atlas 5D)

Client Consent information AR

Dental vislualisation

Medication dispensing guide AR

Wound Care record

3D cast generation

 

Construction and Contractors

Job Estimator Measurement

Building inspection

Room Measurement

AR Equipment Maintenance Checklist

Accident reporting

AR Painting decorating

Geographic safety inspection

 

Education

AR Classroom

Autism Curriculum Enhancement

Content Visualisation

Distance Learning (3D Avatar)

Hearing/Writing guidmace

Sensory Processing Disorder testing and documentation

 

Insurance, Finance and Real Estate

Real Estate Property search AR

Insulation assessment

Amenities locator

Real Estate visualisation (staging)

ATM locator

Location based merchant offers

Natural Disaster documentation

Damage assessment

VR property visit

 

 

 

There are many more industries like Government, hospitality and many more use cases.

 

I think that both commercially and for consumers Project Tango will introduce a whole new

capability that will enable all new cool features. Hope this helps or should I go on?

There are a couple areas that I have experience in that would totally benefit from this technology.  Real estate - the applications within real estate are fantastic - what a time saver and productivity boost for all parties involved.   Medical applications are another - a mom home with a sick kid no longer would need to get them dressed, take them out, and further stress their immune systems.   Can't wait for this VR to be R!

Re: Project Tango: Are you ready to change the way you use your phone?

techie_thor, I like the idea of Virtual Apparel Fitting and think this could be huge.  I prefer to do as much shopping as possible online but I almost never buy clothes or shoes that way because the risk of them not fitting is too high.  And who wants to deal with returns?  No one, not the consumer or the retailer.  Not having to drive to the store to try things on would be a huge time and gas saver for me - and I'm sure many other people.

Re: Project Tango: Are you ready to change the way you use your phone?

For the VR medical applications, I love the idea that I would not have to take my sick child all the way to the doctor because they could potentially be diagnosed right at home.  For those in rural or less developed areas where distances to needed expertise can be extreme, this technology could truly be life changing or even life saving.
