The communication app company Snapchat astonished the world on Saturday by revealing their first hardware product spectacles, which record videos in 10-second increment. Snapchat re-branded company name to Snap, Inc itself.
Its camera has 115-degree-angle lens, wider than Smartphones and much closer to the eyes’ natural view of the field. The spectacles price will cost $130, available in only one size, will emerge in three colors: black, teal and coral and will start shipping soon.
Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel told the Wall Street Journal that taking photos from the vantage point of your eyes made more sense than holding up a Smartphone, which is, “like a wall in front of your face”
How spectacles will work?
The best way to make memories is simply by tapping the button which is on the top left-hand corner of the spectacles. When you tap the button recording will start and it will automatically stop after 10-seconds, but if you want more recording you can tap again to add another 10-second increment. Each new tap records another clip. On the front of the spectacles there is a light which will show when the camera is recording. You can record up to 30-seconds at a time.
Once the video has recorded it will sync wirelessly to a smartphone in the Snapchat app, but it only happens in iOS devices. If you have an Android phone, you have to transfer them via Wi-Fi. Spectacles will come with a dedicated charging case and cable.
