Google is rumoured to be developing a new tablet capable of taking 3D images, as the search giant continues to make strides in visual technology.

The company plans to produce about 4,000 of the prototype tablets as early as next month, according to sources quoted in The World Street Journal, and is being developed as part of a Google research effort dubbed Project Tango.

The new tablet will come with a 7-inch screen, two back cameras, infrared depth sensors and software that can capture three-dimensional images.

According to figures from market research company eMarketer, more than one in three consumers in the UK will use a tablet at least once per month in 2014 – up 22.9 per cent from 2013.

By 2017, the tablet will become a mass-market device, with more than half the UK population using one at least once per month, according to eMarketer.
