Snapchat Launches Spectacles With Cameras
Snapchat has come with a hardware product, surprisingly. Its spectacles, which is said to be a set of connected sunglasses priced tagged $130 and dubbed as Snap, Inc.
The device is capable of recording 10-second snippets and this fall it will hit the shelves.
Snap, Inc. comes with a single button to help start recording after a press, writes the Wall Street Journal.
The cameras fitted on the spectacles are equipped with a 115-degree lens, which si said by co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel is closely apporximates a person’s field of vision.
The WSJ adds spectacles record circular video and creates a playback experience to stimulate natural point of view.
Spiegel said, “When I got the footage back and watched it, I could see my own memory, through my own eyes — it was unbelievable.”
It is learned the product will be rolled out in slow pace and in slow numbers. It will be characterized as a toy.
There’s a probability people will start comparing the Snap, Inc. with Google Glass, which was the most fruitless foray of Alphabet earlier.
Google Glass is a wearable face-based computing and is priced tagged $1500.
