So what can be done by this camera-sunglasses for $ 130? “Imagine one of your favorite memories. What if you could go back and see that memory the way you experienced it? ” Snap inc said in a news release. To start recording a video, you just need to touch the frame. Spectacles connect directly to Snapchat via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and transfer your Memories directly into the app in our brand new circular video format. If you update your Snapchat, it will ask you to authorize access for Bluetooth which mean the app is ready for Spectacles.
Circular video plays full screen on any device, in any orientation, landscape and potrait. Wahtever you change the way you view your screen or, by continuing to spin your phone around in any orientation, the video won’t move and captures the human perspective with a 115 degree field of view.

At first it might seem strange when you start using it, or might be considered creepy perv by people around you and they will avoid your eyes when led on the camera lights up, indicating that you’re recording. But if everyone starts using it, it may look perfectly natural to use Spectacles while walking in the park.
