Wow. Take that, hololens!

This is a lot like what some people are doing with Google's Project Tango. They're using a Cardboard-style HMD with the tablet, for a closed AR experience. Also like Intel's Project Alloy, in fact.

I would have gotten a Structure Sensor a while ago if they'd developed Android software. This is something that can be very useful for people who are too technically inclined to own an iDevice, but don't have the time to spend writing their own software to support it. I understand it's also useful for creative people who do use Apple products, but they could double their sales if they created an Android version of the software.

That software already exists. It's called Project Tango. The only problem is that the hardware support is currently limited to a ~2 year old tablet or an unreleased Lenovo phone.

I'm expecting them to announce some sort of AR HMD or support for Intel's Project Alloy, pretty soon. Otherwise, they risk being left in the dust.
