Remember when Facebook built a wacky 360-degree camera to record immersive video? Well, now it’s shot its first film, which allows you to explore New York’s Grand Central Terminal.

Mark Zuckerberg posted the video to Facebook overnight, calling it “a preview of what a full-length virtual reality movie will feel like.” Especially if you’re a fan of train stations.

You don’t need a VR headset to watch the video, but it does work better on a phone than a PC, because you can wave your handset around like a loon to see what’s happening around you.
