Nokia's OZO is the first commercially available virtual reality camera

Nokia has strayed far from its roots as a phone maker with the launch of its latest gadget - a virtual reality camera dubbed OZO.

The spherical device, which looks like something you might see hovering around in the background in a Star Wars movie, uses eight synchronised global shutter sensors to capture stereoscopic 3D video.

OZO records spacial audio via eight integrated microphones and will be the first camera of its kind to receive a commercial release.

Nokia is gearing the device towards professional content creators, but anyone with a virtual reality headset could potentially use it for real-time 3D viewing.

The Finnish firm is aiming to release OZO in the fourth quarter of this year, with pricing and its final specs yet to be confirmed.
