Heh I was about to do the same which refreshes https://www.spectacles.com/locat... and wakes me up with an alarm and calls an @Uber to the coordinates.

@calialec @uber auto-calls an Uber?!?! what if it's on the opposite side of the country!

@tzhongg hahaha you're right, the only reasonable thing to do is have a dynamic action based on the distance. If it's close to me, it calls an Uber, if it's a little farther away, it reserves a Zipcar (which I used to drive to the Big Sur location), else book a flight πŸ˜‚

Although they will probably never deploy a Spectacles vendor machine close to me (Vienna/Austria) I thought a Snapbot notification service could be usefull for a lot of other people. Now you can stop reloading https://www.spectacles.com/map/ and enjoy the day. Snapbot Spotter takes care of checking the website every 5 minutes and will send you a notification as soon as a new Snapbot is deployed. Cheers, Mo

Was going to build something similar to this with a friend tonight but I'm happy it exists. You did a great job Moritz!

@neuling2k is there a way to reach someone near the machine to buy it for you? That would be awesome!

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that NO one is wearing a shirt on the spectacles homepage?

@cleggskie Hadn't noticed until you pointed it out. They really want to draw your attention to those glasses. Either that or Spectacles are aimed at an entirely different market than most thought.

@evanaumack As my friend @jregb put it, it sort of reinforces the stereotype they’re trying to avoid right?
