Nasa to send 3D Google smartphones for space robots

Nasa plans to send Google's 3D smartphones into space to function as the "eyes and brains" of free-flying robots inside the Space Station. The robots, known as Spheres (Synchronised Position Hold, Engage, Reorient, Experimental satellites), currently have limited capabilities. It is hoped the smartphones, powered by Google's Project Tango, will equip the robots with more...
