Google Invites Selected Devs to Buy Project Tango Development Kit

project_tango

Just about a month ago, the curious Project Tango development kit was officially listed as available in the Google Play Store. To much confusion however, it wasn’t available for purchase unless you registered for the device development kit at I/O. And if you did register, you were able to purchase the kit for a hefty price of $1,024 US. Well, now it looks like Google’s opening the gates just a little bit by inviting selected developers to purchase the kit.

The email makes it clear that the development kit is available only in limited quantities and only for the selected “professional developers” to whom the emails are addressed to. In other words, this kit is designed only for professional developers an. . . READ ON »

Project Tango Tablet Listed on Play Store

project_tango

If you’ve been following Android hardware development in the last year, you almost certainly stumbled upon Project Tango–a feature rich tablet with multiple cameras and really tasty hardware specifications.

We’ve talked about Project Tango back in June, when Google announced it for a rather pricey sum of $1024. Now, the Project Tango tablet has officially been made available on the Google Play Store. Before you start looking for money under your grandma’s mattress, we need to warn you that it’s not for sale just quite yet.

$1024 seems like a rather high price for a device that us sold “as is.” If you manage to break it, you won’t be able to send it under warranty, and . . . READ ON »

Google Unveils $1024 Project Tango Tablet Development Kit

tango

We haven’t heard all that much about Google’s Project Tango since was first announced back in February of this year. Aside from a demo of Tango in action and early Tango smartphone dev kits making their way to developers, not much has happened in the Tango world. But today this changes, as Google has just unveiled the official Project Tango Tablet development kit.

Let’s first get the bad news out of the way. The developer kit will run $1024, which although being a nice power of 2, is not quite so nice on a would-be Tango developer’s wallet. But for all of this money, is it worth it?

Developers looking to develop for the Tango platform have quite a lot to work with in the new Ta. . . READ ON »

Google Project Tango Dev Kits Make their Way to Developers

tango-unboxing

Last month, the Google ATAP team announced Project Tango. The Kinect-like Tango, which comes from the same team responsible for Project Ara, aims to bring sensor-based 3D environmental mapping to your smartphone. Ultimately, this means that rather than simply knowing its position in abstract space, a Tango-based mobile device will also know its position relative to its environment. Then a few days after Tango’s unveiling, we saw an early preview that showed off its data acquisition capabilities. Now, select developers are finally starting to receive their Tango dev kits.

So what is life like through the eyes of Tango? Makezine’s Omar Soubra offers a look courtesy of his early dev kit.

Google Project Tango to Bring Kinect-Like 3D Awareness to Smartphones

google_tango

When Google sold Motorola Mobility to Lenovo for $2.91 Billion at the end of last month, many were worried about what this would mean for the future of the team behind Motorola’s modular smartphone project code named Ara. Then one week ago, the ATAP team announced that it would be moving from Motorola to Google. This naturally lead to speculation regarding whether the ATAP team had anything else cooking in their secret ovens. The answer is now here: Google Project Tango.

In its current form, Project Tango is a working prototype of a 5″ smartphone featuring custom hardware and software that is able to, in their words, “track the full 3D motion of the device, while simultaneously creati. . . READ ON »
