Google has announced it is working with IMAX to create a 360-degree camera capable of creating high-quality cinema-grade video.

Speaking in a VR-based address on day 2 at Google I/O, the head of VR Clay Bavor said Google s work within its Jump platform had attracted the attention of Hollywood.

Currently, Jump and the $15,000 Odyssey rig pictured is geared towards creating footage for YouTube to be viewed on Google Cardboard headsets.

Today's announcement via VentureBeat comes amid a warning from Steven Spielberg, that VR technology could be dangerous for film-making.

I just hope it doesn t forget the story when it starts enveloping us in a world that we can see all around us and make our own choices to look at.

Elsewhere, Google also revealed that Jump rigs will be available to YouTube creators through its Spaces studios in LA and New York City.
