Google's "Project Tango": Empowering Your Views in 3D

Has anyone ever thought about a 3D smartphone, Google has been working on it since last year, aiming to provide a broader awareness of all the visible objects in natural environment.

"Google Project Tango": The Most Advanced Technology Project by Google

Currently "Project Tango" aims to provide mobile devices "a human-scale understanding of space & motion", according to Johnny Lee, project lead at Google's Advanced Technology and Projects group. Lee and his project team also wrote, "Yet, our mobile devices assume that physical world ends at the boundaries of the screen.".

This 3D technology can help people in endless ways. Users can use this technology just wailking around their house to get the 3D dimensions of a furniture before buying it, or to locate the place where a particular object is showcased in a store, and it can even help visually-impaired person to navigate in an area which is unknown to him.

Currently the "Project Tango" includes a prototype model having 5" size with Android, combined robotics and vision technology to track 3D motions of the phone while developing a 3-D model of the targeted place. The company is also seeking professional developers to distribute their already arranged 200 development kits by March 14, 2014.

Google has been involved with various universities and research labs in 9 countries to develop this platform, including university of Minnesota, German Tech firm Bosch, Gearge Washington Universityand Open Source Robotics Foundation.

This advanced platform is described as ultra-low power, high-performance delivering architecture of advance computional chips enabling the device to "intelligently distinguish and contextualize the surroundings".
