It’s becoming a Google world, and we’re just living in it. Take, for example, its new endeavor called Project Tango. According to its website, “Project Tango is an attempt to create a mobile device unlike like any other, a mobile device that shares our sense of space and movement, that understands and perceives the world the same way we do.”
Google asks you to imagine walking into a store and seeing exactly where everything you want to buy is located, or being helped to navigate a new place. Google says “the possibilities are vast.”
So, then, what kind of Project Tango possibilities exist for venues? The Event Manager Blog has some answers.
“For venues, this technology could also be a boon. Much more than a panoramic image, you’d be able to show a potential client a full virtual walkthrough of the space, including different table setups setups (classroom vs. rounds), stage configurations, centerpiece options, linens, and chair covers. This could be especially handy for more unique or unusual spaces and venues that might not translate well into pictures or videos,” Brandt Krueger wrote. “We all know those kinds of venues—that you almost have to see to believe before you can even visualize having your event there. Being able to quickly and easily make 3D walkthroughs might make the sell go a little easier, or at least get the potential client in the door to see for themselves.”
