REVEALED: Leaked image shows Facebook's secret competitor to Snapchat glasses ๐Ÿ˜œ



Also, this circular video format that Snapchat made with these glasses looks pretty awesome (and solves the portrait vs landscape video debate, at last). ๐Ÿ‘Œ

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 ๐Ÿ˜Ž



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 canโ€™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 ๐Ÿ‘Š
