Google Aiming to Soon Have Project Tango in Consumers’ Hands

LG Tablet Could Be Available In 2015

The world could be three-dimensional early next year.

LG logoThat is, of course, if Google meets its goal of bringing its Project Tango to consumers in early 2015. The company announced Thursday it is aiming to have its 3D sensing program on LG phones and tablets next year.

Reportedly, the first device to feature the technology would be a tablet but when it lands on the market or what it could cost has not been disclosed.

The idea behind the project is that while humans see the world and live in a 3D environment that ends when it comes to our electronic devices. However, what if we could record our environments in a 3D capacity? Earlier this year, Google released a video demonstrating what the program can do and how users could, potentially, record in 3D and then turn that recording in to a variety of scenes.

It’s a cool idea that’s been gaining steam.

Google has already, TechCrunch reports, shipped limited numbers of its Tango phone prototype to developers and launched a seven-inch tablet-based Tango device using Nvidia’s Tegra K1 processor to developers who were willing to pay $1,024.

But, up until now, we’ve never had any hint of a consumer product. Let’s hope researchers push ahead and we’re seeing the world differently in 2015.
