Snapchat prepares to release its first wearable tech glasses

Snapchat is releasing a wearable product next year. Called   Spectacles, the new fashion tech will cost $130 for a pair with ab ability to record 10 seconds of whatever you’re seeing. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the glasses film 115-degrees wide to mimic human perception, and record a round image that creates videos outside the bounds of standard rectangular cropping.

It’s a design as confident as any millennial on Snapchat, which goes to show that, even though the product is really just a hands-free camera rather than some advanced augmented reality system, Snapchat isn’t repeating the mistakes of the ill-fated Google Glass—or even the looming limitations of Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets or Microsoft’s Hololens– FastCodeSigns reports.
