WSJ: Google is Building a Tablet With Advanced 3D Imaging


Google has a new tablet in the works that incorporates advanced vision capabilities that can capture more precise three-dimensional images of objects, the Wall Street Journal reported late Thursday. Sporting a 7-inch display, the tablet will come equipped with two rear-facing cameras, infrared depth sensors, and advanced imaging software, unidentified sources told the Journal. The company plans to begin manufacturing the tablet next month, producing 4,000 prototype slates, the sources said. CNET has contacted Google for comment and will update this report when we learn more. The tablet is reportedly part of Google’s Project Tango, which is supervised by Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group, a skunkworks division that Google inherited with its acquisition of Motorola Mobility.
