Snap has announced the launch of the latest version of its Spectacles sunglasses – this time with dual HD cameras to capture depth and dimension in 3D.
Back in November of last year, we wrote about the rumours that Snap was working on yet another version of its Spectacles photo and video-enabled smart-glasses – this time with an aluminium design and two cameras. Despite its failure to sell most of the first batch of Spectacles, Snap Inc. actually released a second – improved – version in September, and more people warmed to them, but it’s safe to say that the smart glasses didn’t make it onto anyone’s list of must-haves. Either way, the company has now announced Spectacles 3.
Spectacles 3 is a redesigned version of the augmented reality sunglasses with a brand new design with dual cameras designed to capture the world in 3D. They are built with a durable, lightweight steel frame and circular lenses and its two HD cameras on the frame, work a lot like the way your eyes do. They capture depth, and “power new augmented reality creative tools” to help you enhance your Snaps.
With a collection of new 3D effects, you can create “magic” moments, add new lighting, landscapes and more to different scenes, simply by swiping. An included 3D Viewer also allows you “to immerse yourself in one of your own memories or enjoy someone else’s perspective.”
Spectacles 3 will ship in November for $380 (at almost double the price of the previous version) and you can pre-order them now at Spectacles.com.
