Google has announced that one of their projects, codenamed Tango, has just passed through the experimental stages of its conception and could be making its way to retailers as early as this year, according to

The program utilizes a device’s camera to scan the world around it into 3D space. It can then take advantage of this information to grant users useful information, such as directions from inside of a building, providing the dimensions of a home before you purchase furniture, and even assisting the visually impaired.

Although Tango has graduated from the experimental stage of the Google product processing procedure. It still has to undergo some more testing in order to be released to the public.

Google is in talks with LG to release a device catered specifically for the software that could be available to consumers later this year.
