It's currently only available to developers in the US. It looks like it's got the same potential as other technologies to be beneficial and negative in equal measure. You know, like a gun can be used for murder or defence or like a box-cutter is useful around the home and less useful to airplane passengers. The printing presses were used to subjugate populations and revolutions were inspired by subversive pamphleteers.

The door always swings both ways...

Surveillance giants like the NSA could conceivably develop a project that piggy-backs on existing google hacks. Instead of just using the android to locate people and monitor their comms, they'd be able to draw a 'live' 3-dimensional schematic of their environment. Phones can be used to record audio of targets and use cameras too, but a camera isn't much use in a pocket or face down on a coffee table. This could surpass that particular limitation.

Further afield, with Google's power resources, how many US people have an android device? Google could partner up with social psychologists and observe the pedestrian and vehicle traffic of a city. Project Tango (in the future) might be able to collect the movements of anyone in view of the application whether they are phoneless or on iPhones. This could (yeah, yeah, speculating the future and increasing power resources) maybe be used to render the human traffic of, say, the Bronx as a series of data-points on screens. Think of ATC towers watching blips on the screen representing single aircraft? Multiply that traffic to several hundred thousand blips and there's gotta be fertile grounds for all types of research.

That kind of data can be used to design healthier urban environments. It can be used to identify triggers for stress in human populations and ways to minimise them.

People with certain disabilities, like blindness, could find the PT app useful for directing them in public spaces and new buildings.

Technology is benign and it's what we do with it that makes the difference.

Like ALL devices, even the ones in like Russia, China....and others?

In order to have a one world gov, all you would need is have some dirt on major players in the world, right by their....!

More cancer for sure.

As long as it is not a requirement, then things will be ok. People LOVE their "smart" phones though... Many people will accept this technology, unaware of the intrusion of privacy. Google will be watching them 24/7. I'm sure this will be integrated into many (if not all) of the "next generation" phones. I wonder when it will become illegal to have "older technology" phones?
