Google is looking for some people to try out its ambitious Jump virtual reality camera hardware this summer.
Google introduced the world to its Jump virtual reality camera hardware at Google I/O in late May. The company now is looking for a few good video creators to test out Jump later this summer. Google has launched a sign-up page for the program which, among other things, asks the creators what they would use the Jump rig for if they got a chance to use it.
The actual Jump rigs will consist of 16 video cameras placed in a circle for capturing clips for virtual reality devices. Google's own computing platform is supposed to fill in the gaps between the camera, along with adding depth information so that the final video should make for a solid experience while viewing it in a VR headset.
