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.

This is an incredible story. I did just a little online research on this kid. His public school teachers put him in special ed and told his parents he was unteachable.
Turns out the kid wasn't paying attention in class because he was thinking about some of the questions left open in Einstein's theory of relativity, and if he solves them, he would probably be up for a (legitimate) nobel prize. Here is the kid's advice on how to be creative when he did a Ted talk: Forget what you know: Jacob Barnett at TEDxTeen

Code rant: Are Your Programmers Working Hard, Or Are They Lazy?
When people are doing a physical task, it's easy to assess how hard they are working. You can see the physical movement, the sweat. You also
