Snap formerly snapchat has new sunglasses gadget called Spectacles. It resembles a pair of sunglasses with a built-in camera for shooting video. This social-video tool is here to change the way we record, share and keep our lovely video memories.
Snap said Spectacles captures video in a new circular format that can be viewed full screen whether holding a phone upright or on its side. The device transmits the recordings wirelessly to a smartphone. It is similar in some ways to Google Glass, a widely mocked wearable device from Alphabet Inc.
Spectacles will come in one size and three colors. The wearer can tap a button near the hinge to record video of up to 10 seconds using the wide-angle lens on the glasses.
According to Snap website, imagine one of your favorite memories. What if you could go back and see that memory the way you experienced it? That’s why we built Spectacles.
Spectacles come with smallest wireless video cameras in the world, capable of taking a day’s worth of Snaps on a single charge. It is integrated seamlessly into a fun pair of sunglasses – available in 3 different colors!
Spectacles connect directly to Snapchat via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and transfer your Memories directly into the app in our brand new circular video format.
Circular video plays full screen on any device, in any orientation, and captures the human perspective with a 115 degree field of view. We can’t wait for you to see it!
Spectacles will be available soon at only $130
