Google cannot do HW

>> Google presented a preview Thursday of its Project Tango Tablet Development Kit, an upcoming seven-inch Android tablet and associated software for creating apps that can track motion and map surroundings in three dimensions.

After using Nexus, I do not think Google should spend its time wasting resources on hardware. Google, they do software but if they have the same team that made Nexus leading this, they will not make progress. Nexus is terrible and simply not a good product. It is very strange that it came from Google.

@goafrit: This is a news. Is Nexus tablet not good device? Nexus phnoe is good, so I presumed tablet should also be good.

Why this organizations are failing in developing hardware devices? What is missing from this team?

I have the tablet - not a great product. The problem is that it has Google name but it is not made by Google. Someone else made it for them. That is the problem.

Looks like we are going to see all sorts of 3D modeled objects online in future.

Yes, soon, we may be unable to know what is real and fakein this work. It will be from virtual reality to real reality! The evolutions in these technologies are happening so fast and I am truly surprised on the speed of adoption.
