Google is reportedly working on a tablet version of its Project Tango advanced mobile vision device, to be launched starting next month with around 4,000 initial developer beta units, the Wall Street Journal reports. The tablet would sport a 7-inch screen, along with a complement of cameras that include two on the rear with built-in infrared sensors for figuring out depth and mapping a space in three dimensions.

Tango is designed to give smartphones (and tablets, too, apparently) “human-like understanding of space and motion,” in order to make possible “new and enhanced types of user experiences including 3D scanning, indoor navigation and immersive gaming,” according to Johnny Lee, technical lead at ATAP. This tech could open the door for advanced accessibility functions, as well as add a whole new dimension for mobile developers to consider when building their software.
