Google's ATAP team is doing cool stuff with Project Tango – like sending it into space to help astronauts do stuff. Of course, those of us on earth also want to get our hands on this upcoming tech to see what it's all about, as well (though probably not for the $1k asking price of the dev unit). According to ATAP team member Regina Dugan in a talk today at I/O 2014, there should be a retail version made by LG hitting the streets next year.

Unfortunately, that's all the info we have right now – no specs, size, pricing info, or the like. That makes sense, because the product is still at least a year away, and a lot can change between now and then.

Either way, how cool is going to be to start mapping stuff in your local area and sharing it across the web? I like the future.
