After years of putting in work, now Snapchat has unveiled their camera ‘Spectacles’which are sunglasses with an integrated video camera.
The company describes the thinking behind the product; “Imagine one of your favourite memories. What if you could go back and see that memory the way you experienced it? That’s why we built Spectacles.”
“We’ve created one of the smallest wireless video cameras in the world, capable of taking a day’s worth of Snaps on a single charge, and we integrated it seamlessly into a fun pair of sunglasses – available in three different colours.”
These Snaps will be displayed in a new circular video format. All Snap Inc. has revealed about this new format so far is that these videos play full screen on any device and in any orientation. It promises to capture the human perspective with a 115-degree field of view.
