Facebook Surround 360 Video Camera

Facebook Unveils 360-Degree Video Camera

Facebook has revealed a new 360-degree high-end video capture system called Surround 360, and it plans to release it as open-source project on GitHub.

Shaped like a flying saucer, this gadget has cameras on all of its ends. It includes 14 wide-angle cameras on the side, two at the bottom, and one fish-eye camera at the top. All of these cameras combined enable users to capture the 360 surroundings.

Facebook is calling Surround 360 the best-designed camera and claims that it can work for “many hours” without overheating, and also provide up to 8K resolution.  Facebook plans to put Surround 360 on GitHub sometime in summer.
