Here’s another glimpse of what Project Tango can do

Project Tango

Google has unveiled Project Tango, a 3D sensing smartphone, which can make computer vision and perceptual computing solutions like software that maps and creates 3D reconstructions of indoor spaces.

Matterport, the company behind Project Tango’s software (and now working with Google), will be present at Mobile World Congress next week, so we’ll be hearing a lot from them in the next few days.

The software is brilliant, and as you’ll see in the video, pretty accurate as well as it maps an actual room using a Project Tango prototype. There is certainly some room (no pun intended) to grow for this project, but it’s an enormous start. The possibilities are nearly limitless for this type of software, so it’ll be exciting to see how Google and Matterport move ahead here.

Hit the break for the video.
