LG to Make a Consumer Version of Google’s 3-D Tablet - Digits - WSJ

From an overview of Google's 3D tablet project; see this Re/code article for more ATAP details

"ATAP [Google's Advanced Technology and Projects group] is headed by Regina Dugan, former director of the U.S. government’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. It was created as a research lab inside Motorola, the mobile phone maker that Google acquired in 2012.

Google kept ATAP when it agreed to sell Motorola earlier this year to Lenovo. The decision to retain the group is part of a broader effort by the Internet giant to work on long-term, riskier projects that could turn into new, big businesses in the future.

Project Tango is ATAP’s most-mature project, but the research group has ten other initiatives, Dugan said. They include a “modular” smartphone platform known as Project Ara and a digital tattoo that sticks to the skin, lasts for about five days and can unlock Moto X smartphones made by Motorola."
