Project Tango is an exploration into giving mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion.

What if you never found yourself lost in a new building again? What if directions to a new location didn't stop at the street address? Imagine playing hide-and-seek in your house with your favorite game character. Imagine competing against a friend for control over physical space with your own miniature army.

We hope you will take this journey with us. We believe it will be one worth traveling. To find out more, and apply for a development kit visit http://g.co/ProjectTango.

The future is awesome. Let's build it together.

We are excited to announce a new project from ATAP, something that we have been working quietly on over the past year. As we walk through our daily lives, we use visual cues to navigate and understand the world around us. We use our eyes to observe the size and shape of objects and rooms, and we learn their position and layout over time almost effortlessly . This awareness of space and motion is fundamental to the way we interact with our environment and each other.  We are physical beings that live in a 3D world. Yet, our mobile devices assume that physical world ends at the boundaries of the screen. The goal of Project Tango is to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion. Our team has been working with universities, research labs, and industrial partners spanning nine countries around the world to harvest research from the last decade of work in robotics and computer vision, concentrating that technology into a unique mobile phone.  Now, we’re ready to put early prototypes into the hands of developers that can imagine the possibilities and help pull those ideas into reality.  What if you never found yourself lost in a new building again?  What if directions to a new location didn’t stop at the street address? Imagine playing hide-and-seek in your house with your favorite game character. Imagine competing against a friend for control over physical space with your own miniature army. We hope you will take this journey with us. We believe it will be one worth traveling.  To find out more, and apply for a development kit visit  http://g.co/ProjectTango. The future is awesome. Let’s build it together. -- Johnny Lee, and the ATAP Project Tango team

So strap a device like this onto a drone bought on Amazon and you suddenly have those mapping drone things from Prometheus?

While I find this tech really interesting and cool, I'm unfortunately concerned about how this will inevitably be used against us, most likely without our knowledge or consent.

Ladies and gentlemen we need these phones for Pokemon Go.

sounds like the first step to mapping out the world in a 3d scale by tapping into peoples phones.

I'm sure this 3D mapping technology wont be appropriated by the government for anything bad.  First they had drones in the air, and now its only a matter of time before they're knocking on your door and doing a security sweep of your home. I'm really not buying this idea that they're pumping tens of millions of dollars and hours into this thing just so some couch potatoes can play Breakout on a 3D render of their living room.  Cyberpunk warned us, but nobody ever listens.
