Google Wants to Turn YouTube Into a Virtual Reality Hub - Bloomberg Business

BYOC (bring your own Cardboard)

"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. 
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."
