Google Tango was officially launched today ushering in the next giant leap for augmented reality tech: depth-sensing for the masses. But whilst, as a business analyst, I should be harping on about its revolutionary potential in serious enterprise applications, I can't help but be more excited about flooding my living room or spamming virtual flowers all over my toilet. It's an opportunity to rediscover the world I thought I knew and explore its creative possibilities with fresh eyes.
Pokémon Go proved that AR can get kids to go outside again, and thanks to the Google Tango with its games like Woorld, a whole new layer of fun has been added to that virtual parallel universe.
Oh how I can't wait to get my hands on a Tango-enabled device and become a kid again; seeing a whole new world augmented onto the one I grew up in.
Keita Takahashi has a new game, and it’s just as weird as you’d expect. The designer best known for the seminal PS2 ball-roller Katamari just announced his latest project, an augmented reality game called Woorld that, according to studio Funomena, is being built "for Tango technology."
