As soon as these work with native Android apps (Camera, for example), you can count me in.

Pros:

Feature set looks great!

Cons:

Requires Snapchat which is a show-stopper.

Agree re: the forcing to Snapchat issue. I own a v1 pair. That was *the* blocker for me - it made the introductory adoption curve too steep. They *could* take more of an "embrace the ecosystem" approach, recognizing the existence of their peers and making their tools compatible. They could then more gradually draw people to using their app. If I start out using Spectacles daily with Instagram and loving the device, then I'd then be a lot more interested in using their other tools. No - import to Snap, export to camera roll, import to Instagram does not count - too much work.

this is true. I would love to record without snapchat

I said it all :)

Pros:

Creativity and originality, at least they are trying something that others don't

Cons:

Friction is high to post on Snap, why wear big glasses to do something that you can do much easier with your phone, faster, better quality?

You can take hands-free first-person video easier and faster with your phone? Also can you elaborate on how the friction is high to post on Snap?

As others have mentioned, would be great if they worked outside of Snap

Pros:

One of the few ways to get "as you see it" footage instantly.

Cons:

You look like a nut
