We have already written about the initiative Project Tango, in which Google last February announced a smartphone with a scanning system of the surrounding three-dimensional space-like sales in Microsoft Kinect. However, it now appears that the internet corporation is not going to be limited in the specified project only cellular devices and, according to the authoritative publication The Wall Street Journal, and plans to release a tablet computer with appropriate functionality.
A prototype tablet with a 7-inch display of 4,000 units scheduled for production next month and may be submitted in advance of the Summit developers Google I / O. The very same gadget through sensors and special software to capture the exact three-dimensional images of objects around can scan the surrounding area, which opens up rich possibilities, for example, in video games. The corresponding scanning system includes infrared sensors depth coupled with two rear-mounted cameras.
