True innovation in mobile is hard to find nowadays, which is why Google’s Project Tango has received so much attention: bringing 3D motion tracking to a mobile device has immense potential. One way to leverage such technology would be crowdsourced 3D mapping. According to Paracosm, Tango can already do just that:
The Florida-based software startup says it contributed a dense mapping tool to Project Tango that can visualize large-scale environments in real time. In fact, as you can see in the video above, two devices can be used to collaboratively map a house thanks to Paracosm’s algorithm, which it is making available to developers via its Reality API. Now all we need is to get our hands on a few of these devices, and I’ll immediately forget all about my Nexus 5.
