Tango, also known as Project Tango, is a computer vision project developed by Google with a team led by Johnny Lee and Larry Yang. Using various cameras and sensors, Tango mobile devices can map 3D environments in real time and perform markerless inside-out tracking. This feature allows the device to become spatially aware and instantly figure out where it is in space. Project Tango has many potential uses, including incorporation into VR and AR Devices and even Google Cardboard.
Currently a Project Tango development kit in the form of a tablet is available. It was released on May 29, 2015 and cost $512.
