It looks like one of Google's next tablets will be unlike anything we have seen before. According to a recent report, Google plans to bring Project Tango to an upcoming tablet product. Not much is known at this time, but the report explains that the Project Tango tablet will have a 7-inch display. It will also include two rear cameras, infrared depth sensors and advanced software that can capture precise three-dimensional images of objects.
Here's a quote with a few more details,
Google is planning to produce roughly 4,000 prototype Project Tango tablets to distribute to developers next month. The tablets will feature a 7-inch screen, two back cameras, infrared depth sensors and advanced software that can capture precise 3D images of objects.
Bryan Ma, an analyst at research firm IDC, said, It is critical to open the new technology to developers first as the key is how you can translate the technology into practical applications.
As you can see, this is one of Google's next big developer push products. As usual, they keep coming up with "out of the box" ideas and throwing them at developers to see if they will stick. We will keep you apprised if/when we get any further details.
