Snapchat is Now Snap Inc. and It’s Developed These New Sunglasses with a Camera in Them


Don’t have a pair of Google Glass? Been waiting for sunglasses with a camera in them? Look no further than Snapchat- or rather, Snap Inc., (more on the name change later).

The new glasses, named Spectacles, are sunglasses with an integrated video camera.

According to Snap Inc., the company has created one of the smallest wireless video cameras in the world, capable of taking a day’s worth of Snaps on a single charge.

Spectacles work by connecting directly to Snapchat via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and transferring users’ images and video directly into the app in a brand new circular video format.

Circular video plays full screen on any device, in any orientation, and is said to capture the human perspective with a 115-degree field of view.

Running around $130USD, the sunglasses/camera come in 3 different colors, and according to the company, they will go on sale via a limited supply sometime this fall. Stay tuned.


So, what about the name change? It’s something that happened back on September 24th 2016..

On this day, Snapchat announced that it was formerly changing its name to Snap Inc.

According to a release put out on their blog, Snapchat no longer has just one product- Snapchats- but others, including this new product, Spectacles, necessitating the name change.

Snap Inc., a Los Angeles company, is valued at US$18 billion and is said be changing its name in reflection of its “larger ambitions”.
