"Last year, Google created a cardboard device that could turn any Android phone into a virtual reality headset. Its next steps are to make it easier to create virtual reality videos and to find virtual reality content to watch on YouTube.Google Wants to Turn YouTube Into a Virtual Reality Hub - Bloomberg Business
Through a project called Jump, Google is looking to make it easier to record, process, and watch videos in virtual reality. It has designed a rig that will allow people to record 360-degree video. This can't be done just with a camera phone—it requires 16 cameras operating in unison. People will be able to build their own rigs, but Google has also worked with GoPro, which will sell its own Jump-ready camera outfit. Starting this summer, Google will give a select group of developers access to its software for stitching the video from all these cameras together into a single experience."
