Open source tools allow Project Tango to evolve with speed and agility (opensource.com)

Over at opensource.com, Luis Ibáñez writes about using open source tools in conjunction with Google's Project Tango, which is a device that tracks its 3D position and orientation while also mapping its surroundings. "Thanks to these tools being open source, it was possible in a few days to create a PCL [Point Cloud Library] plugin for Paraview, download data from the device using the adb tool of the Android SDK, and load the cloud data into ParaView for analysis and visualization. Since the data is acquired by the device in a continuous manner, the output is really 3D + time in nature. That is, as a sequence of cloud points, each one of which is time stamped to a particular time and has a camera position and orientation associated with it. This aggregate data is managed in ParaView as a time series [requires login], and it can be consolidated to reconstruct the 3D scene around the device."

Wasn't Project Tango a movement to introduce coherent icons and color scheme into Linux world?

No, that wasn't Project Tango, that was the Tango Project. ;-)

Think of it this way - Project Tango is actually possible. The Tango Project? Forget it.

Agree with you.

No, TANGO is object oriented distributed control system

Posted Apr 27, 2014 14:16 UTC (Sun) by debacle (subscriber, #7114) [Link]

using CORBA (synchronous and asynchronous communication) and zeromq (event based communication) under (L)GPLv3. See http://www.tango-controls.org/ and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TANGO

No, TANGO are the Trustable Algorithms for Nonlinear General Optimization

written, it seems, in Fortran, available under GPL from the University of Campinas and University of São Paulo joint project for optimization software development. Tango from Brazil? Yes, here: http://www.ime.usp.br/~egbirgin/tango/

No, TanGo is a Go Client (Chinese board game)

Posted Apr 27, 2014 14:27 UTC (Sun) by debacle (subscriber, #7114) [Link]

for Windows, written in Visual Basic and available under GPL, see http://www.gnu.org/software/gnugo/free_go_software.html and http://senseis.xmp.net/?GoClient
