Paracosm's tool shows off the collaborative nature of Google's Project Tango.

The team at future-thinking software company Paracosm have created a new tool designed for Google's Project Tango smartphone, one of the latest initiatives out of their Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group.

Paracosm's platform turns 3D scanning into a collaborative process, where users can create a realistic 3D model of any space and join their data with others' scans to create accurate models. Paracosm developed dense mapping – which they describe as “real-time mapping of complex and arbitrary indoor scenes in variable lighting conditions” – for Project Tango and worked on the core technology underlying the 3D reconstructions and models.
