Project Tango is a tablet device that allows users to scan and digitally map their immediate surroundings. With a sophisticated array of sensors, Tango provides instant 3D mapping of one’s physical environment as they navigate through their space. Tango can perceive depth, shape, and form, just as human eyes can with “stereo vision”. This open source development kit is intended to provide software designers with a tool to explore the possibilities of 3D scanning technology. Leveraging the form factor of consumer level tablets, Tango represents a new product category, and is a significant leap forward in computer vision technology. The intended outcome is a better understanding of 3D software capabilities and future applications.
