In case you haven’t heard, Project Tango is all about incorporating 3D space and area into your smartphone. As Google’s website says, “The goal of Project Tango is to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion.”.
Project Tango is an exciting venture designed for virtual reality. Using computer vision, image processing, and vision sensors it enables us to move forward in the path of VR and how we use it. It’s no coincidence that virtual reality is expected to be a $120 billion market by 2020. And it really is as awesome as it sounds:
At CES 2016, Lenovo announced that this summer would see them being the first company to commercially showcase the full utility of Google’s Project Tango with a mobile phone. Don’t get confused by ‘commercially’, as the product is not yet ready for public use and is only meant for developers.
So what does this thing look like? Well, we don’t exactly know much about it and its specs. What we do know, is that the screen will be less than 6.5″, at least according to a Lenovo spokesperson. We also know that over 5000 developers are already actively contributing to it, a good indicator at how much work Google has actually put into it. All these developers are slowly improving the software and building software on which Project Tango runs.
