Google and Lenovo have announced plans to team up to create the first consumer-ready smartphone featuring Project Tango tech. Although the smartphone is still in the prototype phase, the image above shows off renderings of what the phone may end up looking like when it's ready for consumers.
Project Tango lead Johnny Lee states that their goal together is to “give tools the abilities they need to understand space and movement at a human scale.” Lee goes into explain the possibilities of what this would mean for individuals and what sorts of things they could with this type of a device, using gaming as an example and that it would be possible to use Tango’s 3D tracking technology to play games and “hide behind furniture” if the game warranted such a task.
Lee also explains that it would be possible to use that same technology to figure out whether or not you would have enough space in a given room for a new piece of furniture to fit, which could be extremely useful and save time and money from buying the wrong product only to find out that you don’t have enough room for it. While the technology in Project Tango is not new as there have been developer kits available for quite a while, this marks the first OEM produced consumer model of a device that can be purchased by anyone who wishes to have a smartphone with Tango’s capabilities.
