Google's Project Tango for Real Estate

By
Real Estate Agent with Progressive Realty (Boise Idaho) www.Progressive-Realty.info DB-17066

I am super excited to have just ordered Google's Project Tango Developer Kit!

I hope that I can team up with a Boise State University intern and / or my web guru friends at www.TourRE.com that might be willing to help me implement this great tool for my real estate brokerage - Progressive Realty Corporation.

I thought about buying a Matterport camera, but the idea of lugging a $4,500 camera didn't really apeal to me.  However, this device is about the size of a tablet computer instead.

Google Project Tango Development Kit

These devices are mind blowing in that is even being used by NASA to navigate the space station.  Check out details of that on YouTube here:  YouTube video of Project Tango - NASA Spheres  Watch the video and hear the Google Geeks talk about pushing their limits is pretty amazing.  Then, realizing that I am about to try to implement this technology with a fraction of their knowledge is a bit daunting.  "If you can do sensor fusing and depth perception . . . there are some truly unique opportunities". 

I hope I can help develop some of those opportunities to help me sell more homes in Boise!

I have received my Project Tango Developer Kit but was surprised to find out that the digital mapping doesn't render via the video.  I was hoping I could use it for 3D home tours, but guess I will have to learn some programming to make that work.
