The device, which is meant for developers, will be sold by Google in late June---think Google I/O---for $1,024.

The History of Tablet Computers: A Timeline

Project Tango's official remit is to entice developers to create "more than a touch screen app" and explore new mobile experiences via computer vision. The Project Tango tablet is powered by Nvidia's Tegra K1 chip in a move that highlights how graphics processing could go more mainstream.

Google started Project Tango with a smartphone device, but is now going upstream. In addition to the Nvidia processor, the 7-inch tablet has 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a motion tracking camera, depth sensing and connectivity. Those tools will go along with software updates, application programming interfaces and algorithms from Google.

Like Google Glass, the search giant noted that the Project Tango tablet development kit is "not a consumer device and will be available in limited quantities.
