Matterport demonstrated a 3D model built with Google's new Android-based Project Tango 3D sensing phone, which targets indoor navigation and immersive gaming. Project Tango was announced yesterday by Google and Motorola's Advanced Research and Projects (ATAP) group, which Google will retain when it sells Motorola Mobility to Lenovo. The 5-inch Project Tango smartphone prototype augments a basic Android phone with a pair of Myriad 1 vision co-processors from Movidius. It also integrates a variety of sensors, including a compass, gyros, and Kinect-like 3D visual sensors for integrated depth sensing and motion tracking.
