    Project Tango is an undertaking by Google's Advanced Technology and Projects group (ATAP), formerly a division of Motorola, with the "goal of giving mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion". On the surface that sounds academic and boring, but start to peel away the layers and start looking at potential applications. and some amazing things come to mind. Currently Project Tango is just that, an internal project being worked on by a group inside Google. It doesn't stop there. According to Google's Johnny Lee, the ATAP-Project Tango Team has been working with ...

    A few months back Google revealed one of the latest ambitious projects from its Advanced Technology and Project group, the sensor-packed Project Tango. Tango's designed to let a device accurately scan its surroundings and determine its location in 3D space, allowing it to form a complete 3D map of its environment. First Google made available an experimental Tango handset to interested developers, and we just saw it follow that up with a very high-end (not to mention expensive) Tango tablet. But how long is this going to remain a curiosity for devs, and when might it mature into a more ...

    This past winter, Google let us know about one of its latest advanced Android experiments, the reality-mapping Project Tango. Using some Kinect-like sensors, the handset's designed to be able to scan its surroundings and create 3D maps. Google's already made that hardware available to developers, but more recently we heard about a new spin on Project Tango, with word that Google was working on a seven-inch Tango tablet that would be released sometime this month. Well, we're still not sure just when it might ship, but Google has gone ahead and announced its Project Tango Tablet Development ...

    Like the idea of Project Tango, but would rather have it in tablet form? According to The Wall Street Journal, Google is developing tablets with "advanced vision technologies," which makes us immediately think back to Project Tango's 3-D capabilities and advanced sensors. 4,000 prototype units will be produced next month, reportedly, though these likely won't be too close to possible retail versions. The device itself will allegedly boast a 7-inch display, and feature two rear cameras and depth sensors with infrared to map the world around you better. Of course, there will also be a ...

    One month ago, we learned about one of Google's latest fantastically ambitious projects, using sensor-equipped smartphones to gather 3D data from the world around them, creating an internal map of their surroundings: Project Tango. It remains to be seen how this kind of tech might find a home in consumer-focused handsets, but for the moment Google is just interested in getting Tango out to developers and letting them see what they could pull off with this new tool at their disposal. After soliciting applications, Google has chosen its participants, and today we get to check out one of ...

    A GPS receiver lets your smartphone know where it is. Accelerometers can detect motion. And for that brief period when smartphones were toying with autostereoscopic displays, they even had cameras capable of taking 3D shots. But despite all these technologies, phones have lacked a comprehensive understanding of their surroundings: what does the room they're in look like? What's their location within the larger building? Google is hard at work to enable phones to become better at mapping the world around them, and today reveals its Project Tango effort to do just that. Project Tango is an ...
