Google Project Tango is a suite of built-in sensors and libraries intended for Augmented Reality applications allowing certain mobile devices to track their motion and orientation in three dimensions without the need for any additional hardware. Our new Android app, "Sound Fields Forever," combines locations with sound intensity data in multiple frequency bands taken from a co-moving external microphone plugged into the phone's analog jack. These data are sent wirelessly to a visualization server running in a web browser. This system is intended for roles in education, live sound reinforcement, and architectural acoustics. The relatively low cost of our approach compared to more sophisticated 3D acoustical mapping systems could make it an accessible option for such applications.
