Snapchat Announces Glasses That Record Snaps

Snapchat has unveiled the company’s first hardware product: Spectacles. They are sunglasses that can record your 10-second video Snaps, and it’s expected to release later this year for around $130. Spectacles features a single button that begins recording when pressed through a wide-angle, 115-degree lens that imitates a person’s natural field of vision.

“When I got the footage back and watched it, I could see my own memory through my own eyes — it was unbelievable,” Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel tells the Wall Street Journal. Spiegel also revealed that Snapchat is being rebranded as Snap, Inc.
