Open Source Tools Allow Project Tango to Evolve with Speed and Agility

open source tools for Project Tango

Google's Project Tango is a platform for Android phones and tablets designed to track the full 3-dimensional motion of the device as you hold it, while simultaneously creating a map of the environment around it. The devices track themselves with an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and collect 3D points with a built-in depth-sensing camera. Project Tango is progressing at a fast pace thanks to many open source tools that facilitate the use of the 3D data. 

Only 200 of these devices have been made available to early testers and developers, and we had the luck of getting two of them at Kitware.
