Google always outdoes itself with the kind of inventions they make. They are simply great and also fun. This kind of technology can be used to save lives out there so for that I have to agree with SachinEE, rescue missions that require a lot of walking and searching can be made easier by such kind of technology if Google decides to create such technology, disasters would be easy to deal with.

You're right, aside from military use, the ability to map 3D locations would be a huge asset for first responders such as fire and medical who would be able to easily navigate low-visibility environments or to quickly locate a person, providing better response times and hopefully reduce negative effects like time spent in toxic environments (smoke, fire etc).

Re : Google Project Tango Tablet: Think 3D
I've just checked out project tango on youtube and found it amazing. The fact that the flight robot does not use gps suggests that it can be sent to solo missions without monitoring. I'm pizza delivery and military. Imagine such robots equipped with guns and sent to rescue missions; it would be just like in the movies. Google is doing such a good work, this innovation if synched with modern medicine will 'give sight to the blind' thumbs up google!
