Following today’s announcement of ‘Jump’, a new virtual reality (VR) platform that allows consumers to record, edit and share their own VR images and videos, Google has launched the official website for the programme. Jump incorporates many external resources, including a partnership with Go Pro and YouTube.
Announced at Google I/O, San Francisco, today, Jump is a new addition to the Google Cardboard VR initiative. Alongside Expeditions, a new education-focused enterprise, Jump was undoubtedly a highlight of the keynote from the first day of the conference. A new redesign of the Google Cardboard head-mounted display (HMD) itself was also announced, now offering support for iOS devices.
Showcasing the camera technology and offering further details on the Jump Assembler, the software through which users can stitch together their video/images and correctly align the stereoscopic 3D, the new website is available at https://www.google.com/get/cardboard/jump/.
Jump was confirmed to be launching this summer, with the initial rollout of Jump Assembler being made available to ‘select developers’. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on Jump and other VR initiatives from Google.
