Google has invited developers to submit apps for Project Tango, promising to select the best ones, then provide both engineering support and funding. The apps chosen will eventually be pre-installed on the newly announced Lenovo Project Tango smartphone, revealed at CES 2016 at the beginning of January.

Before submitting apps, developers will need to put together a small package to support their ideas. This includes:

  • Visual mockups including concept art
  • A schedule including key milestones
  • Storyboards, screenshots, and videos of the app in action.
  • A one-page summary of previous experience.
  • Team introduction summary

Google wants developers to submit app ideas, like this virtual game of Jenga, for use on Project Tango devices.

Google’s requesting that submissions be made before February 15, and it’ll inform successful developers by March 15. For some inspiration, Google has highlighted Lowe’s Project Tango app, where items of furniture can be virtually placed in a room, plus a virtual tabletop game of Jenga.
