Sure, Google and crew can put together some nice tech demos for Project Tango's advanced depth sensing and motion tracking, but what happens when everyday developers take a crack at it? You're about to find out. Google has announced the winners of its Project Tango App Contest, and most of them aren't what you'd expect given the technology. The overall winner is HeroicArcade's WeR Cubed Tango, a 3D puzzler that relies more on motion than the usual screen taps.

Need something more practical? DotProduct's Phi3D for Tango, the "utility" winner, lets you capture detailed 3D models just by walking around. Other winners include Ghostly Mansion, Rabbx's supernatural hidden object game, and FLARB's augmented reality-based InnAR Wars. There's no doubt that this is just a hint of what Tango can do, but Google is helping things along: it's running a short-term promotion that gives you a Project Tango Tablet developer kit for half off by signing up for a promo code.
