With a single push of a button, Spectacles can record 10 seconds of video that is automatically pushed to the Memories section of the Snapchat app. It uses a camera with a 115-degree angle field of vision, which closely resembles to a person’s actual field of vision.

In addition, Spectacles has created a circular view of the video to give a natural playback experience of viewing video at one’s natural point of view. But you may still view the video’s playback in full-screen, whether on landscape or portrait orientation.
