This has to be the most unique product launch I've ever seen. Time for a trip to Venice Beach 😎.

@jackdweck Maybe someone in Santa Monica can help us out? Willing to pay someone to ship it to the east coast.

@jackdweck Grab me a pair πŸ™ (I can do like $140 max)

@jackdweck pure genius.

Apparently these vending machines "never seem to stay in one location for too long"

Where to next? Any predictions? SF tomorrow or perhaps it'll slowly move up the cost

Snapchat (now called Snap) continues to do things differently. Apparently they're distributed their new Spectacles via vending machines called Snapbots. You'll be able to find them located on this map.
Nichole ElizabethΒ β€” Moderator at Product Hunt
@rrhoover I had a really hard time understanding what was going on here until I followed your Spectacles link.

@rrhoover I wonder what their role-out timeline looks like seeing that there's only one snapbot on the map now
Pedro A. WunderlichΒ β€” Designer, founder from Guatemala.
@rrhoover Big fan of Snap's creative approach towards everything they do. Keeps people eager to know what they'll do next.
Leslie PurchaseΒ β€” Co Founder Ourdata
@rrhoover Agree, the roving Snapbot idea is absolutely innovative. Scarcity of product can turn from excitment to annoyance if they aren't careful. The absence of further locations and information is venturing into overhype territory.
