Excited to announce Project Tango! The goal of Project Tango is to give mobile devices the ability to understand space and motion. What do you think?
We are excited to announce a new project from ATAP, something that we have been working quietly on over the past year.

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.

-- Johnny Lee, and the ATAP Project Tango team

Hit the Road with President Obama! 
Very excited to announce that we're hosting a Hangout "roadtrip" with President Obama next week from +The White House, after his State of the Union speech. The President will join Hangouts in different regions across the country to talk w/ Americans about issues related to his speech.

Want to join?  Post a 60-second video with your name, location, and a bit about yourself and the question you’d like to ask, and share it publicly with the hashtag #AskObama2014. The sooner the better! Find out more in the blog post below.

To give you an idea of how this works, here's a Hangout we did with President Obama last year after the 2013 State of the Union: http://goo.gl/DepurP

So happy for my friend Ben and his family. This is definitely a tear jerker but worth watching.
