Well, Hmm. “Project Tango crashed”
I’ve had to reboot maybe 8 or so times after gtting the device prepped according to Google. The hardware is interesting and very cool. Is it ready for prime time? I don’t know yet. This screen is my most familiar:
And then it crashes. Yuck. But…. After rebooting, and SUCCESS.
This is the program Project Tango Explorer. It has 3 modes: Area Learning, Pointcloud, and full diagnostics. The area leaning is what seems to crash consistently on me. I tried to map areas and it usually fails on about 2-5 minutes with Tango crashed. I moved on to pointclouds.. and that’s what you see up there. The thing has an infrared laser on it.. And weird! I’ll be submitting a video shortly through Youtube. It looks like it’s a Time of Flight laser, given the interferometry pulses.
