Google reportedly manufacturing tablets that can map your surroundings in 3D

According to the Wall Street Journal, Google is building 4,000 prototype tablets equipped with cameras and sensors that can map the world around them. The prototype is said to be a part of Google’s Project Tango efforts.

Details of Project Tango were first unveiled in February when Google announced a prototype 5-inch smartphone that can create a three-dimensional map of its user’s surroundings through a bevy of cameras and infrared sensors. The device featured a 4-megapixel camera, an image tracking camera and a combined RGB and infrared sensor, through which it could create an accurate 3D rendering of real-world space and objects.

Google sent out 200 of these prototype units to developers so that they can build tailored apps for the device. The search giant is said to take a similar approach with the prototype 7-inch tablet, which will reportedly be distributed to devs ahead of the annual I/O conference in June.

The tablet will feature similar hardware as the prototype smartphone and will include infrared depth sensors, two back-mounted cameras, and “advanced software that can capture precise three-dimensional images of objects,” according to sources familiar with the matter. Between Project Tango, Google Glass and the self-driving cars initiative, Google is actively looking to new technologies to solve real-world problems.

  • Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there\’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That\’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

And whether Nike Sportswear wants to admit it or not, they’re still definitely profiting off the Yeezy hype with yet another all-red sneaker. Foam fans aren’t complaining, though, as this is sure to be one of the most sought after Foamposite releases of the year. Check out another round of images of the “Red October” Foamposite Pro here today, and remember to mark April 11th on your calendar if you’re trying to cop a pair.
