For those of you unaware Google’s Project Jump is a camera rig that features 16 GoPro cameras setup perfectly to film video for virtual reality. The way it works is you place the rig onto a tripod or camera poll and all the cameras film at once capturing a 360-degree of your surroundings. Once you get back to your computer, you can use their software to stitch all the clips together to create one seamless video that can be viewed using virtual reality glasses such as Google Cardboard or on YouTube.

Google aims to make virtual reality mainstream and the only way to do that is by making the videos and way to watch them cheaper and easier for the consumers. Currently Project Jump is not available to buy just yet, but for a lucky few you might be able to try it. Google has opened a Project Jump application where anyone can fill out the sheet with basic information and give a brief explanation as to why you would be the perfect person to test it out. Obviously the most important part of the form is the explanation of what you plan on filming with them. Google will give priority to “awesome” responses.

Good luck to those of you who apply and we would love to talk to you if you get in.

I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $177 per hour. I work through this link, < w­­­w­­­w.­­N­e­t­ca­sh­9.­­­C­­­o­­­m
