Contributor(s): Ivy Wigmore

Google ATAP (Advanced Technologies and Products) is the company's development lab for disruptive technologies

ATAP projects include:

  • Project Tango, a high-end tablet with spatial awareness, optimized for 3-D applications such as mapping and gaming.
  • Project Jacquard, tech-embedded fabric for wearable computing.
  • Project Vault, a secure computing environment on a Micro SD card.
  • Project Soli, a radar-enabled gesture interface.

Regina Dugan created and leads ATAP. Dugan is the former director of DARPA, the independent research branch of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

Project ARA is the one I'm actually most excited about. The biggest downfall to smartphone technology today is the fact that it is entirely self contained, with next to no ability to modify anything from a hardware level. Making cell phones modular and allowing component level interaction, now that is intriguing to me :).
