While there's already talk of President Obama moving onto his next thing, tonight, he'll address the country on the main stage for the last time during his official farewell speech as President of the United States. It'll be all over the news, of course, and the White House will be streaming the speech on its homepage and Facebook. But it has also tapped immersive media company VRScout to bring it all to you in virtual reality.

VRScout teamed with Radiant Images, Vantage.TV and Nokia OZO to set up 3D 360-degree cameras at McCormick Place in Chicago, where Obama will deliver his parting words. So while he speaks, you'll also be able to see the tears streaming down the faces of the crowd as well, on Facebook, YouTube or Twitter/Periscope.

You can either watch through your mobile phone or experience the full deal on your VR headset.
