Google’s Impressive Project Tango 3D Tablet Gets Teardown Treatment

Check out the insights of this interesting piece of technology

Not so long ago the developer kit for the Google Project Tango tablet edition was launched into the world, inviting devs to start building a 3D app ecosystem.

And if you’re wondering how engineers at Google put this little piece of wonder together, the folks over at iFixit are ready to show you the insides of the slate.

Thanks to their curiosity, you’ll be able to take a sneak peek at the sensor mash-up that lies under the hood of the slate. In all possibility, you might get Kinect vibes, but Google says it used a custom infrared projector built by Mantis Vision which works side by side with a 4MP IR camera.

The Tango tablet is surely a very complicated product, so there’s no chance you’ll be able to replace any of the parts once it gets out on the market. The teardown has been performed only for the sake of art and even a part as simple as the 2,480 mAh battery was custom made.

For those who don't remember, the Tango tablet is one of the few slates in the wild today taking advantage of an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor.

The developer kit is currently available for purchase, but the consumer friendly version of the project will launch under the LG banner sometime in early 2015. Keep an eye out for it!
