Snapchat Announces $130 Smart Sunglasses
OREANDA-NEWS. September 26, 2016. Snapchat has unveiled its first hardware product, a pair of smart sunglasses called Spectacles. As part of the company’s new venture into wearable devices, it has also rebranded itself as Snap Inc., and has a new Twitter account to boot.
WSJ Magazine reports that Spectacles will allow you to record as much as 10 seconds of video shot by a 115-degree-angle lens. You’ll have to connect the sunglass wirelessly to your smartphone in order to make the video accessible on Snapchat.
Available in three colors (teal, coral, or black), the Spectacles will only go for \\$130, which is much cheaper than Google Glass’ \\$1,500 price point.
