Upgrade You Snap Game with these $130 Snapchat Spectacles!
Now you can upgrade your Snap game with these $130 Snapchat Spectacles! What are you waiting for?
Snapchat has made all your dreams come true when announced this week that Spectacles will be available online for you to purchase.
These awesome pair of glasses will let you shot snaps with just a touch of a button.
How does it work? Well, it is pretty simple! There is a wireless video camera embedded in the sunglasses that captures 10 seconds of video and saves it to your Snapchat app on your phone.
Pretty cool, isn’t it?
We knew about the Spectacles since November last year, and we’ve been waiting since then to get our hands on a pair, which at first were only available from a vending machine on Venice Beach.
Back then you could get a pair of black, orange or blue glasses for more than $900 on eBay. Not that case anymore.
However excited you are, it seems that Snapchat isn’t making any money off the glasses. According to a recent Snap’s IPO filing, Spectacles have not generated any revenue for the company.
“There is no guarantee that investing in new lines of business, new products and other initiatives will succeed,” the company wrote in its filing.
But that should not stop you to enjoy the glasses, should it?
These cool glasses feature a camera with a 115-degree lens, which is designed to mimic how humans actually see.
According to the company all you need to do in order to snap is to tap a button located on the top left-hand corner of the glasses.
It will automatically stop after 10 seconds so you don’t need to worry about how to stop it. The glasses work on both Android and iOS devices, if you own an Android phone, you can transfer your snaps over Wi-Fi, but if you have an iPhone, they’ll transfer either via the sunglasses’ Bluetooth connection or Wi-Fi.
The specs are not waterproof though, and the battery will last about a day, so in order to charge them you need to use the cable that it comes with.
The Snapchat Spectacles are on sale on the company’s website, but US customers only for now.
“Snap’s (Snapchat’s parent company) IPO is expected to take place on March 2, so the move to sell Spectacles to the masses could give Snap a stronger footing as it tries to court investors during its whirlwind roadshow over the next two weeks,” the report said.
‘Spectacles’ were launched in September last year and was available for purchase from vending machines at surprise locations in the US.
