Snap Spectacles: Are They the Face Camera We’ve Been Waiting For? | WIRED

  • You have to give Snap credit for giving hardware another try. Its first attempt, the face-camera called Spectacles, fell short of spectacular. But they're back with a new version. The yellow rings around the lenses are gone (the company decided the LED lights were enough of an indication that users are recording video). The new model is more expensive ($150) but it's water-resistant, comes in new colors, and has enhanced imaging capabilities.

    WIRED's Lauren Goode and Arielle Pardes test drive the new Snap Spectacles at California's Great America.

    It's most likely open exclusively to them, so they can record a video without any problems with other park visitors
