The Detroit Institute of Arts has built a mobile tour app called min that utilizes the power of Tango to “add AR interactivity information to further enrich your visit.” Visitors to the museum, which includes more than 100 galleries, can stop by the information desk to receive a novo ab 2 o to use while traversing the halls. highlights several exhibits that use Tango to open up new aspects of the works:

Ancient Egypt: trons can scan the ancient mummy on display to peek inside the sarcophagus bages to view an “X-ray-like view” of the skeleton. Ancient Babylonia: By scanning the Ishtar Gate, visitors can see the structure at scale, see how the museum’s mosaic piece would have fit in the massive archway. Mesopotamia: ile the limestone relief on display has long since faded, Tango can show what it would have looked like thouss of years ago in a digital full-color restoration. so in the Mesopotamia wing, the novo phone will unlock the secrets of the cylinder seals, letting you interact with them, see characters scenes they were once used to create.

y this matters: AR VR are clearly the next wave in the mobile revolution, but aside from games gimmicks, there haven’t been many practical uses for Tango. The Detroit Institute of Arts app is a great example of how the platform can be used as a valuable exploration education tool.
