With the advancement of 3D printing, this is a very welcoming technology as now the phones can act as a 3D scanner
scroller, 30 May 2015What benefit is this to me as an individual?It can act as an eye for the blind. It tells them where everything is through the earphone. Very good innovation indeed

Long answer:- If it's called Project Tango then it's not for mass market. It's only for interested devs.
david, 30 May 2015well, then ill wait for Kinect on my lumia :) far better tech!true, because this is a copy of MS R&d tech which is far more advanced than this and they will create a better one than this.
AnonD-230821, 30 May 2015what is 3D-sensing camera for?Project tango is all about creating a virtual model of the 3d space actually around you. So the camera and other sensors sense the walls, floor and roof and their distances, and put it on the phone. So when you move around, the phone can tell where you are relative to the walls and everything. Huge applications in the vr department.
If this comes to market, I will definitely force myself to buy one, this will literaly make my job easier LOL.
