Project Tango Gets A Tablet

on Thursday, Jun. 5th

Put your way-back caps on and set them to a few months ago when Google announced Project Tango: a smartphone initiative that put 3D machine vision kits on a handful of Android phones that would be made available to a select number of developers interested in exploring what 3D sensing can do.

Now Google is expanding that program with a tablet.

Our 7″ development kit is powered by the new NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor packed with 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, motion tracking camera, integrated depth sensing, WiFi, BTLE, and 4G LTE (availability will depend on region and carrier).

These development kits are designed for professional developers interested in exploring the future of mobile 3D sensing. Developers will receive updates as the software algorithms and APIs evolve. These development kits are not a consumer device and will be available in limited quantities.

While the quantities will be limited, the program looks to be a bit more open–in the spirit of Google Glass the tech giant is making the dev kits purchasable later this year. The price: $1,024. Definitely not in the “toy” category, but that’s not the point here.

Just what is going to be possible when our devices can see the world the way that we do? No one is entirely sure, and that’s what is so exciting about Project Tango.
