REVEALED: Leaked image shows Facebook's secret competitor to Snapchat glasses 😜 Also, this circular video format that Snapchat made with these glasses looks pretty awesome (and solves the portrait vs landscape video debate, at last). πŸ‘Œ

@nivo0o0 and they're called "The original Facebook Spectacles"

I actually like the fact that these are designed so they dont look ridiculous on your face like Google Glass These are made in a very 'in-style' right now This gif makes me think of Google Glass, especially compared to Spectacles 😎 Announcement on their site Spectacles connect directly to Snapchat via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and transfer your Memories directly into the app in our brand new circular video format. Circular video plays full screen on any device, in any orientation, and captures the human perspective with a 115 degree field of view. We can’t wait for you to see it! Oh and one of the more notable awesome things:

@bentossell Should succeed as long as @scobleizer avoids the shower with them on.

@bentossell Same, the problem with Google Glass (well one of) was it they didn't look stylish. Providing they price it appropriately, I could see people actually buying/wanting these.

@bentossell agreed these look way better than google glass

@bentossell Design is dope and circular video format is truly a very good move from Snap πŸ‘Š

Only downside (or upside): no selfies πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘»

@caprihiggins I definitely think less selfies on Snapchat is an upside. Think of all the fresh + even more authentic content you can produce with these glasses. I think this will encourage Snapchat users to sort of go back-to-basics in using Snapchat for posting real life experiences that bring people together. While the selfies with their cool filters are nice, I tend to miss seeing real experiences, such as the one used for this promotion. I'm excited for this product πŸ˜ƒ
