Project Tango Hands-On: Computer Vision Is So Much Cooler Than You Think

Google’s Project Tango tablet can see in 3D, but I didn’t really understand why I, human person, would actually care about the technology beyond an abstract appreciation of the ideas behind it. Until I strapped one to my face, with an Oculus Rift-like head mask.


What Won't Work In Cheaper Windows Phones

The good news: Microsoft is loosening its strict spec standards to push some highly affordable Windows Phones to the market. The bad news? Those phones are going to be a little bit, shall we say, compromised.


Leak Shows Windows Phone 7 Tango Looks A Lot Like Mango

Purported screenshots of the soon to be announced Windows Phone 7.6 Tango have emerged on a Russian forum. There are a handful of new features, but what’s really interesting is how little seems to have changed.

Tango Motorcycle is Like a Segway, But Less Pathetic

Sure, the Segway turned out to be a gigantic joke of a failure, but that doesn’t mean the technology from the dork transporter is useless.

Tango Wings UMPC Has Vista, Slide-out Keyboard

It was just a matter of time before another UMPC came out with a similar slide-out keyboard to the HTC Shift that debuted back at CTIA. Don’t get us wrong—we don’t think this is a copy—we’re just pointing out that both have sliding keyboards.
