Technology Stocks News 19

Google Inc (NASDAQ GOOG) has recently launched a $1000 tablet prototype with 3D sensors and a motion tracking camera. 3D technology is the latest trend among the tech giants, with big firms like Google and Amazon gearing up to launch 3D-enabled devices.

Google has been working for some time with universities, research labs, developers and other tech companies to develop the capabilities to map and sense the world in three dimensions via a smartphone or tablet. So it came as a little bit of surprise when Google announced that it was working with LG and planned to offer the technology in consumer tablets early in 2015.

And although it didn’t mention specifications or pricing, Google did also confirm that it is working with the Unity and the Unreal game engine and chip-maker Qualcomm as part of the consumer development.
