Today, during the Google I/O keynote, we revealed Google Jump: an effort to democratize the creation of true, live action, stereoscopic 360 videos. For the past two months, I had the opportunity to work with some very creative engineers, filmmakers and coders in some of the very first field tests of this new, exciting camera rig.

The effort culminated in a collaboration with EDM artist Avicii and YouTube director Kurt Hugo Schneider, and resulted in an awesome 360 video for Avicii’s latest single “Waiting for Love”.


The video above can be viewed on any platform supporting YouTube, but is best experienced on mobile (or better yet, using Google Cardboard), allowing you to track the action by physically looking around! On desktop platforms, you can use your mouse to drag the image and look around.
