Project Tango

Public might get a shot at Google’s Project Tango tablet

If you’ve been dreaming about what is probably one of the most robust tablet devices out there – namely, Google’s Project Tango – this will be very good news for you. Google might just be opening sales up to the public for this device soon, as intimated in an email update to developers who reserved their Project Tango tablets but failed to purchase.

Space Sketchr + Project Tango makes 3D digital drawings

We’ve talked about Project Tango before – Google’s high tech tablet that is able to render stuff in 3D because of its multiple cameras. Google recently made the ultra-high tech tablet available to app developers, looking towards a strong app ecosystem for when it releases the tablet to market. That’s a good decision, we think, as apps like Space Sketchr are stretching the ideas of 3D execution and application.

Google’s Project Tango tablet moving closer to reality

That’s one small step for a tab, one giant leap for all of its kind: Google has recently announced that Project Tango, a high-powered concept tablet enabling the user to recreate reality in digital form, has taken the next step towards actual realization by graduating out of its Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) division. That means that Google is actually thinking about the device's marketability and real-world applications.

Google’s Project Tango starts shipping to developers

If you’re a consumer, it may be hard to figure out what to do with Google’s Project Tango – which is really a high-powered tablet manufactured by LG with very special cameras and sensors that will be able to scan, map, and render real-world environments to 3D images. The tablet is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra K1 chip and costs USD$1,024. But the device is specifically targeted for developers -- to whom Google has started shipping the device -- so you wouldn't have to answer that question yet.

Project Tango Tablet is on Google Play Store, not yet for sale

Ever wanted a super powerful tablet with powerful cameras and an understanding of the world as we see it and not as flat 2D images? If so, then Google's Project Tango might just be for you and, coincidentally, the tablet has just shown up on Google Play Store. That said, the device isn't actually available for purchase just yet, and neither is Google letting on how much it will cost. But given the features and purpose of the tablet, we expect it to cost quite a lot.

Google’s Project Tango gets a tablet, powered by NVIDIA

Google has just announced their Project Tango 3D imaging smartphone will get a big brother. Moving from experiment to development kit, the Project Tango tablet will be available to a select audience later this year. A sign-up page for the device is active, but it’s likely not one you’ll want to try and snap up.

Google’s Project Tango torn apart by iFixit

Google's Project Tango has become the subject of the latest iFixit teardown. We like seeing these teardowns as they generally offer a view that most users will never get to see -- the inner guts. But in the case of Project Tango that is especially true as this is a prototype device. Or in other words, a device many will never see in the wild at all.
