Paracosm shows off impressive crowdsource 3D mapping software used in Google’s Project Tango

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.

F**k it, we'll do it live!

Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.

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.
