The company behind the popular social app Snapchat, now known as Snap Inc., has released its first hardware wearable device called Spectacles.
Spectacles is a wearable technology eyewear that can be connected to the Snapchat app via Bluetooth or WIFI.
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.
Spectacles offers a stylish look that can be casually as a regular sunglasses and will be available for sale later this fall at USD 130.00.
For the meantime, here’s a preview of Spectacles.
