Facebook and RED have partnered to develop a 3D VR video camera that offers a truly immersive 360 experience, the companies have announced.

The partnership will join together Facebook’s depth detection technology with RED’s low-light performance to create a camera that can capture all of the three dimensional information in a scene to give users an immersive experience beyond the stationary view.

What this means is that, unlike with many VR headsets now where you are limited to one position and can spin around for a 360 view, the new Facebook-RED 3D VR camera would free you from the view of the cinematographer’s camera angle to be able to explore the virtual world on your own.

Neither Facebook nor RED gave a release date for the camera.
