We got a look at how the Tango's mapping capabilities can be used for everyday tasks—as well as for having a little fun inside your home.

I ve already seen how Project Tango is used in the International Space Station, as well as in a museum as an augmented reality guide.

I still haven t seen the smartphone, but I did get to see a few demonstrations where its underlying technology could be helpful at home.

The application will automatically snap a line to each angle of the object, so you don t have to worry about being precise.

Sure, both apps seem designed to encourage you to pull the trigger on that new couch or that fancy convection oven.

But they re also excellent examples of how Tango s technology can be used to aid even the most menial life decisions.
