Google said Thursday that it will start selling a 7-inch tablet to developers interested in the company’s Project Tango 3-D motion-capture effort.
The $1,024 kit features an Nvidia Tegra K1 mobile processor and will be available in late June from the Google Play store. Those who attend this month’s Google I/O developer conference will have first crack at buying one of the tablets.
It features a number of cameras, including one for tracking motion, a standard front-facing camera and a built-in depth sensor.
Google unveiled Project Tango in February, showing a prototype phone and aiming to get developers excited about the effort.
“Our goal is to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion,” Johnny Chung Lee, project lead at Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group, said in a video at the time.
