No thanks. We're still in the early days of wearing a camera directly on our faces. One of the major backlashes to Google Glass was the fact that other people didn't know they were being recorded and felt their privacy was invaded. Snap rightly added the recording light to Spectacles to ease this concern. Covering up the light increases the creepiness again.

Also, who does this solve a problem for? It makes it directly worse for anyone being filmed (creepiness factor way up) and the person wearing the glasses doesn't see the light. Your marketing website does not help ease concerns about any of this).

@eric3000 Thanks for the feedback. This really all in good fun, - anyone could just make their own stickers anyways. Plus a little light still shows - just not enough to make it obnoxious anymore.

If you really wanted to be creepy and secretly record someone there are tons of hidden camera glasses (that look like real glasses) available on Amazon for ~$20.

Considering Spectacles are the hottest gadget of 2016 (even outside the tech world) it's safe to say no one is being "sneaky" wearing them, even with this sticker!

I felt that subjects of videos of spectacles focused too much on the camera and it ruined the moment instead of relaxing and letting the moment flow.

EDIT: Eric, I agree with your concern. I really want spectacles to work and I think the lights were a great step forward, I just personally wanted a cleaner look (knowing I will respect others privacy) though I hear your concern of this in the wrong hands. I'm optimistic these will be used in the right way.

@danielsing3r @eric3000 people rarely buy spy gadgets. A lot of people will probably buy Spectacles. The problem is not surveillance between people, the end problem is the surveillance power by both the company running the service (Snap) and the government they're tied to (the US)
