Facebook has just rolled out 360 Video in their newsfeed (like THE ROCK FATHER so that I show up in your newsfeed, cool?), and publishers including STAR WARSDiscoveryGoProLeBron James & Uninterrupted, NBC's Saturday Night Live and Vice are on-board for the day one launch. In the case of STAR WARS, fans can get a 360° view of Jakku from the back of Rey's speeder - straight from STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. You're probably gonna have to watch this one a few times, as there's some additional characters, creatures, and even another speeder (one that Hasbro already released as a toy) that show up in the immersive, minute-long clip. Take a look...
