Google’s Project Tango on its way to an upcoming tablet

Project Tango

Google’s Project Tango has shown a lot of promise in its abilities to handle advanced vision capabilities , and it appears that Tango will be appearing on an upcoming tablet this year.

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.”

We don’t have many more details on Google’s plans, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as there’s more.
