Google reveals 3D-mapping Project Tango

Monday 24 Feb 2014 10:53 a.m.

Google's mountain of cash is funding some innovative technology that could eventually be part of our everyday lives.

It's called Project Tango - so what does it do?

Tomizone executive director Steve Simms says Project Tango allows users to walk around a room taking photos, and have their smartphone create a 3D image.

It takes 250,000 measurements per second, and has been in development for more than a year.

Its applications include disaster response, tourism, gaming, exploration and real estate.

Elsewhere in tech news, Facebook has paid US$19 billion to buy a messaging service and an allegedly NSA-safe phone is on the way.

And what's Telecom got in store with its new internet TV service?

Watch the video for the full interview with Steve Simms.
