Nvidia Tegra K1 tablet features same location sensing as phone

Google has shared more information about its Project Tango 3D-sensing tablet, and teased a pre-sale program for interested developers. The Nvidia Tegra K1-powered tablet, designed to "understand space and motion the way humans do" is a seven-inch device with 4GB of RAM, and and 128GB of storage, at least in the prototype stages.

The Project Tango developer's kit runs Android KitKat, has the same motion-tracking camera and depth-sensing sensors as found on the Tango phone, alongside Bluetooth LE and "4G" LTE chipsets.

Google claims that the installed sensors allow the tablet to "make over a quarter million 3D measurements every second, updating its position and orientation in real-time, combining that data into a single 3D model of the space around you." The new device and APIs provide depth, position, and orientation information to applications written in C/C++, Java, and the Unity Game Engine.

The development kit will be available in extremely limited quantities and is expressly not for consumers at this point -- a fact reiterated by Google when announcing the pre-sale. The Project Tango tablet developer's kit will sell for $1,024 later this year.
