Google finally announced the development of Project Tango for tablet devices officially. The developers outside Google can now help build the program using the “Project Tango Tablet Development Kit”, a special tablet that has a special camera that can track 3D movement. Earlier reports said that Google has set up 4,000 units of the prototype device.
Project Tango has the ultimate goal that a mobile device can be used to view images ‘deeper’ like human eyes. In February, Google has introduced an Android smartphone which allows that image capturing. Project Tango technology can map the area captured by the camera into a three-dimensional map.
About tablet used for Project Tango, Google uses very high end specifications. Created for developers, the tablet has a 7-inch display, NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. For connectivity, there are WiFi, Bluetooth LE, and 4G LTE. Developers can register themselves on Project Tango pages in order to buy this tablet with a price of $1,024 when it has been available.
