I heard project tango is hitting the market? Has anyone tried this out? What does it compare like to Matterport? It's only $500

Google warns purchasers of this developer-aimed piece of hardware that it is, in fact, for developer, and not for the general public. As such, they suggest the following.

"Please be aware that the tablet is not a consumer-oriented device," said Google.

"These tablets are designed to enable software professionals to develop for the platform. The tablet has known issues and will receive regular updates which may modify the device's functionality as the platform evolves. By purchasing this device, you acknowledge you understand this risk."

It sounds like the platform for developing a Matterport-type system is what's being released.

i started with project tango before Matterport and I think it will perhaps someday be able to make a 3d model that is superior to the Matterport one but at this point in time the software is not there. I doubt that project tango will ever be able to produce the high quality walkthrough views you get with Matterport because if the nature of the device without added hardware. I bought my first for 1100 and sold it for 1300. Might be worth it now and maybe there is more software. If anyone is looking for one I have access.

FYI, Google just started selling the Project Tango devices to developers for "half price" $512(US) instead of $1024. I just ordered my second Project Tango at the lower price.
