Sound Field demo shows Project Tango’s audio potential

While we've seen what Project Tango is capable of visually - we can scan and explore 3D space. What Left Field Labs have decided to do is attach sound to objects in 3D space in a game called Sound Field. This game was first previewed at GDC 2015, and we're getting our first look - and talk - about it here at GTC 2015 from one of its creators. This game requires both a Project Tango device and a pair of headphones (attached to said Tango) to work.

Google’s Project Tango has a Minecraft demo, too

Google’s Project Tango has a Minecraft demo, too

At a demonstration of the newest in new Project Tango hardware and software by Google at GTC 2015 we've gotten the opportunity to take a peek at an off-brand Minecraft. "This is sort of our homage to Minecraft," said Google ATAP Technical Program Lead Johnny Chung Lee. He proceeded to create a brick house in a 3D space using the newest Project Tango tablet with NVIDIA Tegra K1 inside. The tablet's screen has a pointer, just like Minecraft, and a building exists in a virtual, yet real, space.

Space Sketchr puts Project Tango’s 3D sense to the test

Space Sketchr puts Project Tango’s 3D sense to the test

Google may have just recently "graduated" Project Tango from its incubation at its ATAP arm, but the future of research-oriented tablet and phone still hangs in the balance. In the meantime, however, developers and researchers are still tinkering with the few devices that are already out in the wild. But what exactly can one do with Tango's 3D sensing capabilities? Well, apparently, you can use it to draw in full 3D space, like what this new Space Sketchr app tries to demonstrate.

Project Tango hits whitelist for consumers

Project Tango hits whitelist for consumers

This week Google has begun opening the buy-gates for Project Tango, bringing in new availability for users around the world. While the device went up on Google Play early this November and began arriving for developers late this November, here in early December (already!) we're seeing the device being made available to those that've showed interest with Google - even if they aren't developers, that is to say.

Project Tango hits Google Play, but isn’t for sale (yet)

Project Tango hits Google Play, but isn’t for sale (yet)

Google’s Project Tango is an exciting look into the future of tablets, gaming, and just overall tech. The devices, via series of cameras and sensors, can map environments and objects in 3D. We knew Project tango would be made available “later” this year, but as time ticked away, we wondered if Google was just behind a bit. Turns out, they may not be. The Project Tango tablet has been discovered on the Play Store, but it’s not quite ready for you to purchase yet.

Why would you want a Google Project Tango tablet?

Why would you want a Google Project Tango tablet?

Google’s Project Tango is gradually graduating from lab to the real world, with Google’s ATAP team responsible for the 3D mapping technology partnering with NVIDIA for a new developer tablet. Thing is, $1,024 is a whole lot to spend, even for a developer device that can see the world in unprecedented detail. So, why exactly would you need a Project Tango tablet?

AT&T confirms Windows Phone Tango update soon

AT&T confirms Windows Phone Tango update soon

Windows Phone users working with AT&T-connected devices for the past few weeks and months have been in a bit of a pickle as the carrier has not sent out a Microsoft-made software update made available this January. This update fixed several bugs in Windows Phone 7.5 Mango including a "disappearing keyboard" issue - all of this will now instead be fixed by a slightly more grand update instead. AT&T representative Anne Marshall spoke up this week about how AT&T has decided to skip smaller, incremental updates to Windows Phone in the short run and stick with larger updates like Windows Phone Tango, which is up for release next.
