Google May Be Developing A 3D-Imaging Tablet
The company's Project Tango now contains a new device that can create three dimensional models or maps.
Earlier this year Google announced the first product out of its Project Tango initiative — an experimental 3D-mapping smartphone. The smartphone is fitted with sensors that take measurements every second to update the device’s real-time position and orientation, and allow it to create a 3D map of its environment.
Now the company is reportedly developing a new kind of tablet as part of Project Tango. The new tablet will use the company’s experimental 3D space mapping technology.
The new tablet will reportedly have a seven-inch screen and technical specs that are similar to that of the Project Tango smartphone. The tablet will have two back cameras, infrared depth sensors and advanced software that can capture 3D images of objects. With advanced 3D imaging capabilities, the device will be able to investigate the physical world around it and create 3D visual maps of its surroundings.
