As a follow up to yesterday’s blog on Google’s Project Tango it certainly would seem that this announcement will be looked at as a watershed moment. It reminds me, as I have noted many times in the past of the technology adoption lifecycle of GPS.
In this case it might be compared to the announcement by Magellan of the first handheld consumer grade GPS receiver that was priced at under $100. That seemed to be the magic number at that time and I don’t have to tell you what happened to the market after that.
One of the comments that I saw wondered about where all this new technology would take us over the next 5 to 10 years. It really is difficult to imagine, but I think it is fair to say that this was a watershed moment.
