Some of the most technologically advanced and futuristic projects that have come from Google usually get their start with the Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) team. Google ATAP is known for housing ventures like Project Ara, the company’s modular smartphone, and Project Tango, an Android-powered device that can map its movement through space using 3D technology. Earlier today, Google ATAP announced that Project Tango will be moving to a new home within the company.
The ATAP team explains:
So, after two fast-paced years in ATAP, and many technical successes, the Tango team is transitioning from ATAP to a new home within Google. We’re excited about the continued commitment to developing the technology for our users — we wish our fellow pirates fair winds and following seas.
The announcement was quite short, and there is currently no information telling us where exactly Tango is headed. However, we do know that Tango will be staying within the company, and that Google is still actively working on the project. This follows on the heels of the recent announcement that Google Glass has graduated from Google X, and is now under supervision of Nest’s Tony Fadell.
