I wish there was more data on resolution, formats and other key features. IMHO, not really an announcement without information on the features we want to know about...

Google just 5days back announced a Project Named "Tango", with an Android-based prototype 5″ phone and developer kit with advanced 3D sensors out of its Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) hardware skunkworks group.

Using its sensors, the phone doesn't just track motion, but it can actually build a visual map of rooms using 3D scanning. This will be promoted for indoor navigation and immersive gaming, among many other things.

This will really chang the world we see today.

Sensing the image in 3D can bring lot of attention in smartphone market. And I think consumer would go happy about it.

This is really something new, I was expecting the back camera will be first replaced by this kind of high resolution 3D cameras, but to my surprise this sensor will be very much useful as front camera as depicted in the article.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
