A truly bitter news for ASUS, who have been expecting so much from their ZenFone AR: Google is no longer supporting the Tango platform, but with ARCore technology, it is swinging in the same direction as Apple with the ARKit included in iOS 11. Once again, it is not the superior technology that wins here, but pragmatism. ARCore is married to the Android OS and provides easier access to AR application development with Android Studio and the Unity and Unreal Engine 3D development environments.
