I was interested in looking at what the possibilities are for being able to do LIVE video with 3D capture. This is different than a 360 video which is a 2D capture of a scene all around you. What I’m interested in is scene/video capture of 3D depth and 360 degree at the same time.
I think that Project Tango has a lot of strong potential moving forward because of a number of factors:
