Odyssey is a virtual reality camera developed by GoPro. It is the first camera built utilizing Google's Jump platform. Odyssey is composed of 16 GoPro HERO4 Black cameras lining the rim of a ring-shaped array. It uses Jump's software to stitch together feed from each GoPro camera to create stereoscopic 3D and panoramic videos.

In May 2016, Odyssey was shipped to select VR companies, WEVR, VRSE, Specular, Surreal, Theory and Two Bit Circus, through a limited access pilot program.
