Facebook announce Surround 360

Facebook already own the Oculus Rift VR device but now they’ve added another device to their selection which is called the Surround 360.

It isn’t a physical camera as such, instead it’s a reference design for a high-end camera that will be released as an open-source project on GitHub later this Summer. The camera has 17 cameras (14 wide-angle cameras, 1 fish-eye on the top, and 2 on the bottom) with  web-based software, which takes the images captured by the camera, and stitches them together into a 360-degree video.
