2014 at 02:12 pm by admin


Google has recently revealed their next addition to the booming smartphone industry: a brand-new mobile phone with a built-in, real-time 3D scanner. Called Project Tango, this new phone, which is currently only available to developers, takes advantage of a number of motion tracking cameras and depth sensors in order to scan the environment in real time, and immediately recreate the environment onto the phone. The phone takes 250,000 3D measurements a second, allowing the camera to instantly update with new information on the fly. This new technology, similar to the scanning technology featured in Microsoft’s Kinect software, has been in development for over a year, and hopes that the technology will be used to revolutionize GPS navigation, as well as gaming and other applications.
