Project Tango is a smartphone and tablet project by Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group (ATAP), formerly a division of Motorola.

The "Project Tango" prototype is an Android smartphone-like device which tracks the 3D motion of the device, and creates a 3D model of the environment around it. ATAP has 200 prototype development kits which will be distributed to developers by mid-March 2014.[1]

The company plans to produce about 4,000 prototype tablets in June, then furnish them to developers. The device would come with a 7-inch screen, two back cameras and infrared depth sensors.[2]

Development collaborators span nine countries and include Bosch, Bsquare, CompalComm, ETH Zurich, Flyby Media, George Washington University, MMSolutions, Movidus, University of Minnesota MARS Lab,[3] JPL, Ologic, OmniVision, Open Source Robotics Foundation, Paracosm, Sunny Optical Technology, pmdtechnologies, Mantis Vision, Prizmiq, and SagivTech.
