For my money, Microsoft’s HoloLens is easily one of the most exciting pieces of consumer electronics set to be released in the near future. One look at this video and there’s just no way to avoid having your interest piqued. Even more so than virtual reality, augmented reality has the potential to reshape the way we interact with computers.

Last week, the world was introduced to what will soon be the first commercially available smartphone that offers a Google Tango experience. Formerly known as Project Tango, the tech offers an enhanced and more fluid augmented reality experience on smartphones and tablets. There are plenty of augmented reality apps out there for iOS, Android and other platforms, but they don’t quite offer the same caliber experience as Tango-equipped devices.

There was a bunch of buzz surrounding Tango when the Lenovo PHAB 2 Pro was unveiled, and you can check out our hands on right here.
