In today's cool thing trying to stop you doing any work, Facebook has launched 360-degree videos, with the new Star Wars film the first to debut the feature.

On web you can look around with your mouse, while on mobile just move the screen to take a look around.

"In the future, imagine watching 360 videos of a friend's vacation to a small village in France or a festival in Brazil - you'll be able to look around and experience it as if you were there," Facebook said.
