Last September, Snapchat’s CEO Evan Spiegel told the Wall Street Journal that other than re-branding the company as Snap Inc, the company is going to start selling Spectacles, its first hardware product.
Snapchat Spectacles is a sunglasses with a camera that has a 115 degrees lens. It records a rather unique 10 seconds circular video before sending it to your smartphone. Users can explore the video it by rotating their devices. Spectacles come with a charging case, which the company said able to charge the glasses up to 4 times.
Yesterday, Snap Inc (formerly known as Snapchat) has finally began selling the Spectacles for $130 each pair via a vending machine called Snapbots.
The secret vending machine Snapbots can be found just outside Snap Inc’s headquarters near Venice Beach California and due to travel around the country soon. You can track its location using a map on Spectacles website. At the moment, you can only buy Spectacles through the vending machine.
