Project Tango Coming to Tablets

Project Tango is an intersection of multiple technologies, combining cameras, depth sensors, inertial measurements, and some advanced processing in order to grab a constantly changing stream of data from a phone’s surroundings and translate that into a real-time picture of the world outside. Applications could range from augmented reality gaming, to architecture and interior decorating services, and even to helping guide the visually impaired.

The project was first introduces for Smartphones, and now Google is reportedly working to bring it to tablet.

According to WSJ "Google is developing a new, cutting-edge tablet as it continues to experiment with advanced vision capabilities for mobile devices."

" The device would come with a 7-inch screen and will be equipped with two back cameras, infrared depth sensors and advanced software that can capture precise three-dimensional images of objects"

The tablet will allegedly be released ahead of Google I/O, which is sceduled in the end of June, so it is likely that the very first shipments will be to developers looking to test on prototype hardware.
