I have said it before now, tech is taking over Fashion Industry. Are a fan of stylish tech – tech products that double as fashion items? The last time, we talked about a stylish Swing Bluetooth earrings and now a smart sunshades. If you are asking, “What do you mean by smart sunshades?”, well, keep wearing your baby that smart diaper while I tell you about Snap Spectacles.
Imagine using your shade to capture the moment via photos and video and syncs them to your smartphone in real time! Hmm!; Yes, it is possible.
A few months ago, Snap, the owner of Snapchat, released the second generation of Snap Spectacles – a wearable camera that captures photos and videos. It looks like the regular sunglasses you see around but has a wearable camera built in.
Here are its features:
- Press ‘n’ Play:
It records up to 30 secs video, all you have to do is press a button one. It records a 30 secs video when it is pressed twice.
You don’t have to worry about using it in pool parties or rainy days. It can even take a photo or video in shallow waters.
- Charge on the Go:
You can capture up to 70 videos on a single charge with the charging case.
- Smartphone Sync:
Every captured photo or recorded video syncs wirelessly with your snapchat or any social platform. Awesome right?
The first generation had a single mic to record the wearer but this new version comes with double mics that records anyone close to the wearer.
What Colour Do You Prefer?
This spectacle comes in a range of colours – onyx, ruby and sapphire. The first generation of this spectacle had just coral, black and teal to its colour selection.
How To Use The Snap Spectacles
- Verify that your phone meets the Minimum Device Requirements.
- Download the latest version of the Snapchat app for iOS or Android.
- Turn your phone’s Bluetooth on.
- If you’re on an Android phone, turn on ‘Location Services’.
Once you are through with the above, then you’re ready to pair:
- Launch your Snapchat and tap the Profile button in the top-left corner.
- Tap the ⚙icon in the top-right corner and then tap the ‘Spectacles’ tab.
Now that you are all set and dressed up for that party or beach hangout. Let’s start capturing.
