Google’s Project Tango was announced earlier this February, where since then, we already know just what kind of camera this particular device will sport, in addition to having heard that it had already made its way to the International Space Station in March. Well, Project Tango is basically an Android-powered device with a special advanced visual processor which is called the Myriad 1. This particular technology would rely on sensors in order to obtain details of the device’s surroundings, where both depth and objects are part of the deal, resulting in a 3D map of what it “sees” around.
Other than that, the Internet search giant has pretty much remained mum concerning Project Tango, but word on the street has it that there will also be a Project Tango tablet (other than a smartphone) which will boast of a 7” display, a couple of cameras (one in front and the other at the back of course), infrared depth sensors as well as a special kind of software which allows it to shoot 3D images of objects all around.
As to whether the Project Tango tablet will debut before Google I/O 2014 kicks off this coming June 25 and June 26, that remains to be seen, although rumor has it that Google will work on approximately 4,000 prototypes of Project Tango.
