Google Inc. (GOOG:US) introduced a tablet computer designed to help developers build three-dimensional applications, as the company works to push the technology onto mobile devices, Bloomberg Businessweek reports.


The 7-inch device is part of an effort dubbed Project Tango, which Google rolled out in February to advance 3-D technology. The tablet, which will let developers create and test new programs, is loaded with cameras and other gear to help capture 3-D images of its surroundings, be that at home or in a business, opening up potential uses for game players, shoppers or the disabled. The tablet, which isn’t aimed at consumers, will go on sale later this year for $1,024 and will be available only in limited quantities.
Google, which makes the Android software that is the No. 1 smartphone operating system, wants to expand features on mobile gadgets as rivals step up efforts to build 3-D devices. Facebook Inc. agreed to spend about $2 billion earlier this year to acquire virtual-reality goggles maker Oculus VR Inc., with Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg calling the technology a “platform of tomorrow," according to Bloomberg Businessweek.
