Snap’s first AR-powered glasses are here and they’re goofy AF

But they’re meant for developers, not the mass market.

Snap today unveiled its first Spectacles glasses with built-in screens for viewing AR content.

Snap for several years has sold Spectacles, its hardware glasses that feature two cameras that can record POV videos for sharing to Snapchat.

But that’s all they do, and since they look lame, they’ve never really taken off. Considering Google released Glass way back in 2013 as a full-on face computer, the Spectacles have always seemed a little simplistic.


Now that’s changing, as Snap today unveiled its third-generation Spectacles.
