This is one of the most amazing pieces of technology I’ve seen lately. Google’s Project Tango┬áis a collaborative project with some of the smartest minds on the planet to develop a special mobile device that can map out our surroundings in real-time in a way that is similar to how humans understand space and motion.

The prototype “phone” is currently being handed out to select developers to see what sort of real-world applications can be done with it. Sounds exciting. Like the Microsoft Kinect in some ways, I guess, but with the ability to map much more complicated areas and be able to use them in countless more ways.
