ZenFone AR – Tango and Daydream together

The ZenFone AR is a potentially very interesting device, combining both Tango for spatial mapping and Daydream capability for VR headset use all in one package. This is a step up from the older Phab 2 Pro Tango phone in that it can also be used with Daydream (and looks like a neater package). Adding Tango to Daydream means that it is possible to do inside-out spatial tracking in a completely untethered VR device. It should be a step up from ARKit in its current form which relies on just inertial and VSLAM tracking from what I understand. Still, the ability for ARKit to be used with existing devices is a massive advantage

Maybe in the end the XR market will divide up into those applications that don’t need tight spatial locking (where standard devices can be used) and those that do require tight spatial locking (demanding some form of inside-out tracking).
