Google and GoPro Dive Into Virtual-Reality Videos with Jump
Today, Google announced that they will be introducing a new virtual reality platform known as Jump. This new partnership is hoping to introduce GoPro camera technology, virtual reality, and push it all towards YouTube.

This new product, called the Array, will put together the video that is recorded by 16 GoPro cameras together as one file. Google has designed this technology to allow 3-D videos to go on YouTube. The top users and producers partnered with YouTube will be able to get their hands on this new technology in July.

Google Hosts Its I/O Developers Conference

Google's VP of product management, Clay Bavor, announced the news Thursday at the company's annual developer conference, known as I/O. The videos designed on Array will be available on Google's virtual reality headset that Google announced at last year's I/O. Within the near future, Google really hopes to break into the 3D and virtual reality realm with the help of the new technology.
