Project Tango development kit

Google today announced the Project Tango development kit — an Android tablet with some unique sensors and features — for a whopping $1024. The tablet is out and out made for developers as evident from the bunch of sensors it packs including motion-tracking cameras, depth sensors, a 120-degree wide-angle front-facing camera and more.

Project Tango is a crazy project from the Internet giant which aims to provide mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion allowing them to create a 3D map of the world around them. With the Project Tango development kit, Google is looking for potential developers who would be interested in exploring the future of 3D sensing.

Under the hood of this $1024 tablet is a quad-core Nvidia Tegra K1 chip, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage space, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, LTE, a 7-inch display and a 2um 4MP camera on the rear. Make no mistake — this tablet is made for out and out crazy development purposes.

If you are a developer, you can sign up on Google’s ATAP Project Tango website to get your hands on this bad boy when it goes on sale later this year.
