Google Tango means 3D maps On The Go

Imagine this: Your phone (or tablet) comes with two cameras, depth sensors, gyroscopes and a 3D vision system that can create 3D maps of the local environment in real time.
Good enough for a mini drone to fly about.
And good enough for an app that can tell you what’s changed in the room since you were last there.
What else might you do with that kind of technology in your hand?

Most things I do involve computers. Nowadays that sounds stupid to hear because everyone uses computers. Except I was saying that before the IBM PC came on the scene. (hint: my first programs were entered on punch cards in an IBM-29) Now I mostly use them. Mostly to provide a community service in my small town. Because I could when it was asked and still can. And I'm a wannabe writer. Various books in various states of incompleteness. A few short stories. Might do more of that.
