Google reveals “Project Tango,” a phone that maps the world in 3-D.
Project Tango is an experimental new smartphone with built-in 3-D sensors that, according to Google, allow wielders to digitally map the world around them. Its spatially aware motion-sensing powers work using a “revolutionary” new Myriad 1 vision processor, which harvests a fraction of the computing power needed for something like, say, Microsoft’s Kinect. It’s like cramming a 3-D scanner into a Pop Tart.fastcompany:
