Google shows what Tango is capable of in 3 new videos

With the announcement of the Tango-enabled Lenovo PHAB2, Google has released three new videos showcasing its power.
Jed Fisher's insight:

I'm not a fan at all of such marketing videos but in this case these are good to explain what Tango can do.

At 4D Pipeline we've been working with similar devices now for some time. You'll see in my past blog entries i talk about how use such 3D sensors with Augmented Reality which together open up many *new* use cases in AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) and in product experiences and configurators. Finally using Tango we can get rid of the distracting AR Markers and now do things like placing a car up on stage and augmenting it or mapping the real world around us and then interact with it. There are loads of use cases we've not even thought about yet. Watch these three videos to get inspired and then talk to me about some specifics for your business.

How Google's Project Tango will change your life

Project Tango is a Google platform for giving phones and tablets a sense of space, and it's going to radically change how people use their mobile devices.
Jed Fisher's insight:

Tango is coming, Tango is coming, Tango is almost here!!

Tango is the single most exciting technology i've seen in the last few years. I was blown away when i heard google was working on it (Apple also have their version of it), similarly Intel has the related RealSense.

In short, Tango is a depth sensor on the phone. This is going to improve computer visions 100x as we can now detect shapes and depth better (and quite precisely). For AEC, Manufacturing, medical, and more this is huge. Imagine - scanning a room, identifying key objects, then being to say render Augmented Reality. The benefit here to AR is we have a MUCH better understanding to our environment, we know where the tables are, doors are, walls are, we can also augment the objects we detect. Huge possibilities are opened because of this. Very very excited to be working on some Tango projects and to see this tech going live.

Matterport: 3D Models of Real Interior Spaces

We're excited about Google's Project Tango announcement today of a smartphone with a built-in 3D sensor. We're especially excited because we've been developing on a Tango demo unit for the last month and can now finally talk about what we've built publicly! We believe that the future of 3D scanning is mobile. As 3D sensors start showing up in phones and tablets, Matterport's software will be an app enabling millions of people to capture, share, and interact with the world around them in 3D. We have been working to optimize Matterport's software stack for Tango, and already have some early results to show.

Jed Fisher's insight:

I’m not a jealous guy but today I am ;-)

Hats off to Matterport. Really blown away to see the first results of Tango. 

I really like that the Matterport have not just gone gimmicky or gamey, they've focused on real world useful problems to solve, recommending their technology for Insurance, Construction Management, Hospitality, Retail, and Real Estate, ... 

I can't wait to get my hands on Tango - ready to knock people off their seats!
