We’ve all had a love/hate relationship at one point or another with Mark Zuckerberg’s social sharing brainchild, but their most recently announced piece of tech is downright awesome. Facebook Surround 360 is a high-quality, production-ready 3D-360 hardware and software video capture system that will export 4K, 6K and 8K video for each eye. Using 17 globally synced cameras (14 wide angle cameras on the ring, one fisheye camera on the top and two fisheyes on the bottom) and the custom stitching code (to remove almost all manual post-processing), you’ll be able to make 360° panoramas and video perfect for sharing (on Facebook, duh) or for a VR headset. Best of all, Facebook plans to freely release the open-source hardware and software specs on GitHub this summer.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
