Do you remember Google Glass? No? Not terribly surprising, given the lack of interest in what was essentially a search engine you could attach to your face. And now comes word that Snapchat is betting on your lack of interest in that product while at the same time streamlining the idea to make it more efficient and customer friendly.
Now known as Snap Inc., the company will soon offer video glasses, to be called Spectacles and designed to upload 10-second video clips to the social media platform. And it can be yours for the affordable price of $130 per pair.
Per Variety, Spectacles will connect to the Snapchat app via either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. The videos, which will be captured with a 115-degree field of view in order to, as Snap Inc. says, match human visual perspective. Spectacles will be offered in three colors: black, teal and coral.
