Google Slashes Project Tango Price In Half

Project Tango is currently only available for purchase by invitation. Today some of those individuals who already have an invitation, received an email informing them that the price of the tablet was being slashed by 50 percent from $1024 to $512. The email also mentions that Google is “opening sales more broadly,” and that this was the last chance for the individual to purchase the device reserved for them.

What is Project Tango

Project Tango technology gives a mobile device the ability to navigate the physical world similar to how we do as humans. Project Tango brings a new kind of spatial perception to the Android device platform by adding advanced computer vision, image processing, and special vision sensors.

Motion Tracking

Motion tracking allows a device to understand position and orientation using Project Tango’s custom sensors. This gives you real-time information about the 3D motion of a device.

Depth Perception

Depth sensors can tell you the shape of the world around you. Understanding depth lets your virtual world interact with the real world in new ways.

Area Learning

Project Tango devices can use visual cues to help recognize the world around them. They can self-correct errors in motion tracking and relocalize in areas they’ve seen before.
