Virtual Reality for everyone. Virtual reality (VR) is the future of immersive entertainment, education, communication and industrial applications. Facebook has set its vision to connect the whole world within the next 10 years. Their latest coup, the Facebook Surround 360, is a 360-degree spherical camera system with open source software code AND hardware material list, from the cameras to the enclosure and optics. Thanks to their unique characteristics, Facebook has selected the FE185C086HA-1 C-Mount fish-eye lens FE185C086 as key component of the Facebook Surround 360. Thus, almost everyone can become director of a 360-degree movie take and its post processing for virtual reality applications.
