Technology helps us connect and communicate with others -- from sharing
commentary and photos on social media to a posting a video with breaking news,
digital tools enable us to craft stories and share them with the world.
Tango can enhance storytelling by bringing augmented reality into our

around how to use this technology to tell incredible stories through mobile

filmmakers and developers to producers and creatives at major media companies.
By the end of the workshop, a number of new app prototypes had been created.

stabilization tool. We’re looking forward to seeing these apps—and many
more—come to life. If you want to start building your own storytelling and
