What makes 3D mapping possible in the Project Tango smartphone? Four cameras, the specs and purpose of which we now know
- a standard, 4-megapixel color backside camera
- a 180-degree, wide angle camera (Fish eye)
- a depth camera shooting at 320x180@5Hz
- a front camera with a 120 degree field of vision

Yea, until Apple or some other troll pre-emptively patents it with very loose language probably this week.

This is innovating!
Look forward to seeing this play out, also wondering if Google goggles will come into play as support app for normal hardware.
