It’s amazing how Google continues to enthrall us with unimaginable innovations. After close-to-precision Maps, they’ve now come up with a Smartphone that can map the 3D world around us. Sounds confusing right? Well, Google has a history of taking up confusing tasks and giving simple results to make life a lot easier!

Their new challenge - Project Tango takes mobile sensing and the application of handhelds to a whole new level. When Google sold the iconic Smartphone maker Motorola to Lenovo earlier this year, it did not sell the corresponding patents,and kept the Advanced Technology and Projects group with it. They had been working on Project Tango for almost a year, and the result is an awesome 5’’ smartphone that features a compass, gyroscope and complex sensors. The device works based on its motion sensing cameras and depth sensor.

"The goal of Project Tango is to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion," says Johnny Lee, leader of Project Tango. You can say that it works like an extension to augmented reality. The team at Google has been working with industrial partners in nine different countries, several universities and research labs to bring together around 10 years of research in the fields of robotics and computer vision into a smartphone.

Though the phone is only at the prototype stage, it has opened up several pathways, to research and apply this technology from a consumer perspective. The device doesn’t just track motion; it builds a visual map of rooms or the world around you through 3D scanning. The scope of this device is beyond imagination and Google believes that it would open up better opportunities for immersive gaming, indoor navigation and many other uses.

In true Google fashion, the phone would be rolled out to a select group of 200 developers. You’ll have to apply online clearly explaining what you plan to build with it, to get one! Google expects to allocate all devices by March 14th, 2014. Word has it that the company would be allocating the device to developers who want to build apps for “indoor navigation/mapping, single/multiplayer games that use physical space, and new algorithms for processing sensor data.” And as for the technicalities – Developers can write apps in C/C++, Java and Unity game engine; however, the API for the phone has still not been completed.
