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.

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.
