Google wants you to create Maps with their Project Tango

Today, Google unveiled its newest technolagy, called Project Tango, which has incredible implications for mapping and augmented reality.

 Google's current prototype is a 5”
smartphone containing customized hardware and software designed to track the full 3D motion of the device, while simultaneously creating a map of the environment. These sensors allow the phone to make over a quarter million 3D measurements every second, updating its position and orientation in real-time, combining that data into a single 3D model of the space around you.
It runs Android and includes development APIs to provide position, orientation, and depth data to standard Android applications written in Java, C/C++, as well as the Unity Game Engine.
