Google and Intel work to bring RealSense to Project Tango

At Intel's Developer Forum, the company revealed it's been working with Google to bring the RealSense technology to phones through a Project Tango development kit. Information is a bit limited currently, but it appears to be a pretty standard six-inch slate design on the front, with a number of cameras on the rear of it. Back in April, Intel first announced its RealSense sensor for mobile phones, which is what is being used to make this happen.

With the use of this technology, the two companies hope to make it easier to handle things like indoor mapping, or scanning of environments. Intel is saying that developer kits will begin shipping to developers at the end of this year.
