Announcing the launch over the weekend, Snapchat said that the glasses can be used to easily create Snapchat Memories – a feature the company introduced earlier this year to let users save Snaps and Stories.
“Spectacles connect directly to Snapchat via Bluetooth or WiFi and transfer your Memories directly into the app in our brand new circular video format,” said the company in a blog post.
“Circular video plays full screen on any device, in any orientation, and captures the human perspective with a 115 degree field of view. We can’t wait for you to see it.”
Snapchat, which also announced over the weekend that it is changing the company name to Snap Inc, claimed that Spectacles will incorporate “one of the smallest wireless video cameras in the world” that is capable of taking a day’s worth of Snaps on a single charge.
The glasses will be available in three colours and will be “available soon”.
