A game environment makes 3D data easier to understand than a point cloud, more intuitive than CAD, and gives users a deep understanding of the space.

Google has been publicly working on Tango for close to three years now, and they’ve made a lot of progress along the way. Tango uses special sensors to map out the physical world so that it can be placed in a virtual one (on a tablet or a smartphone). So far, this technology has been

It's a lot of fun and the opportunities for development are vast.

"...machine learning... In short, it’s a way for an A.I. to be constantly improved that works by allowing the system to look over data it’s compiled in the past and by figuring out what’s related and appropriate, learn how to handle situations involving new data."

The 3D sensing abilities are exciting, but not fully baked yet.

Yeah my experience has been the same but I expected this device and platform to be very finicky. I like how the article compares this to the first camera phone in 1999 and how "bad" it was, but yet a good idea.
I'm still digging down the rabbit hole of indoor AR navigation and tango seems to be the best choice for now.

"Within the near future, your cell phone may include a LiDAR chip."
This small, cheap, fast, and powerful LiDAR promises to open up new applications we haven't even imagined yet. And it's due in a few years.

Sounds interesting but I'd wait for working production prototypes before getting too excited. The maximum range (5 meters) is a bit disappointment considering that they suggest that this would be used for "autonomous vehicle applications". For a chip this cheap, I would rather take 25° spread and longer scan range because you can always put multiple side by side to cover wider angle. A chip with 25° spread and maximum range of 100 m for around $10 would be a steal.

My latest blog about how to capture 3d scans with a Tango enabled phab2pro and Share via sketchfab:
Difficulty: Pretty easy Required: A Tango enabled device such as Lenovo’s Phab2Pro This is how I have been scanning 3d models and uploading them to sketchfab. Once uploaded to Sketchfab it&#…

I created a place I will start putting random fun things I've been doing with my Tango enabled device. Feel free to join in on the fun. I have a bunch of different Christmas tree 3d scans and an old classic hot rod I also scanned that I will upload to sketch fab and share to this community page, but for now there's nothing to look at.
Sharing the Tango Experience
Post your pics vids or sketch fab 3d model, whatever fun randomness you've been doing with your Tango enabled device...
