Remember last year's I/O, when Google revealed JUMP? It was a VR content creation system consisting of a camera rig made of 16 GoPros (called, appropriately, the "Odyssey") and some incredibly smart cloud-based processing and sharing software. Now, a year later, Google's Clay Bavor revealed at the company's developer conference that Hollywood was fascinated by JUMP too -- that's why Google's working on a cinema-quality 3D camera rig in partnership with IMAX.

"IMAX, of course, is known for incredibly immersive capture and audio," Bavor said. "And they're going to be bringing their decades of experience with camera design, optics, sensors and more to JUMP."
