Google’s Project Tango tablet moving closer to reality - Android Community

Google’s Project Tango tablet moving closer to reality - Android Community | Tools You Can Use | Scoop.it
Project Tango aims to recreate a digital version of the world around it like no thingamajig can, in 3D and in real time. Remember how Tony Stark dealt with the Chinatown crime scene in Iron Man 3? Using precise cameras, movement sensors, and depth-tracking, Tango can create a 3D image of its environment that can be manipulated according to the requirements of the user. While gaming seems to be the most obvious usage of this technology, recreating 3D environments in real time can also be useful for engineering, public safety, police work, and a whole new world of other applications.
