VIDEO RECORDING SUNGLASSES
Snapchat fans will fall in love with the company’s newfangled video recording glasses called: Spectacles. The glasses aren’t just cool and good-looking: they also actually protect eyes from the sun as well. Their main function though is to record snaps of your day and sync them to your Snapchat Memories, which makes them a fun travel accessory.
The glasses comes in three colours (black, coral, and teal), and have a small camera built into the frame, allowing users to capture ten-second clips and send them to their iPhone or Android smartphone via the Snapchat app, all without using their hands. The glasses’ bright yellow case doubles as portable battery charger and includes a USB cable and a ghost-shaped cleaning cloth.
Some of the nifty features of Spectacles include Press, Play: Just press the button to start recording a ten-second video from your perspective, hands-free. Press again to extend the recording to 20 or 30 seconds. The Spectacles light up to let friends know you’re recording. Your videos are backed up and saved to Memories on Snapchat. Just open Snapchat to start importing via Bluetooth, or connect to Spectacles over Wi-Fi to import in HD.
You can send your videos to friends and even add captions, stickers, doodles and other effects on Snapchat. Spectacles also charge on the go: there’s no need to bring your charging cable along or even your phone because Spectacles can capture and store videos on their own and recharge in their case up to four times. A charging case and cable are included in every Spectacles purchase.
