Google’s Project Tango to be Made by Lenovo: Announcement at CES Inbound
If you didn’t know, Project Tango is an effort by Google to create 3D maps of rooms and buildings with the use of crowdsourced data.
The project aims to use GPS and accelerometer data from mobile devices such as phones and tablets to create accurate maps for a multitude of uses, such as rapid 3D modeling, and accessibility usage of disabled peoples. Today, it was outed that Lenovo is now working with Google to create the next generation of Tango hardware. It seems that Google and Lenovo are sharing a common event at CES on January 7th, and though we don’t know much about the new hardware as it stands, it is quite interesting that Google is working with a new hardware partner that has not done much in terms of Android development as of now.
Lenovo had this to say about the event:
“Mobile devices should see and navigate the world, the way we do. Join Lenovo & Google’s Project Tango for a special announcement.”
What do you think they will release? A new Phone? Tablet?
Let us know.
