Snapchat has been causing quite the fuss on social media lately and it’s all down to their first piece of physical hardware. Snapchat Glasses. They cost $130 Dollars (Selling for 1000 dollars on ebay) and are only available in pop up ‘stores’ or vending machines which are called ‘Snap Bots’.
There have even been reports of people waiting in line for up to 4 hours in line for these glasses! They are available all around the US however, they aren’t advertised and you have got to scourer your Twitter feed or around the cities or your local area to find them.
The glasses feature a camera with a 115-degree lens, which apparently mimics how we as human’s actually see. When you record footage (connect the glasses via bluetooth to your android or iOS device) the video is shot in circular video. However when you view the footage in the Snapchat app and not on your video/photos app the video then fills the screen, if you rotate the device too you get a super clean and smooth transition, thus allowing you to see more of the image.
The battery lasts about a day or 100 video snaps so it depends on how much you shoot really. You’ll want to keep a hold of the case which holds 4 charges itself, so you can get theoretically around 400 snaps per charge cycle (4 charges)
