Google’s Project Tango, launched in 2014, is set to expand its reach. The company has big plans for Tango in 2016. Google aims to establish Tango as a mainstream product, which can be integrated with modern mobile devices to offer users ground-breaking 3D experiences. So far, the project has been mostly in the experimental phase to allow mainstream adoption of the technology. Tango offers its users 3D visions of an indoor area through the combination of computer images and motion sensors. To accomplish this, devices using Tango are equipped with tools like accelerometer, gyroscope, camera, and special sensors to map the depth and activity of the indoor space. Now, Google plans to extend the technology to offer a 3D mapping experience of outdoor surroundings as well. This has great potential for Google’s other pioneering product – Google Maps.
