Santa Monica, CA—Snap Inc. unveiled Spectacles 3, the latest version of its Spectacles sunglasses with dual HD cameras to empower creativity in 3D. Shipping in fall 2019, Spectacles 3 captures depth and dimension the way the human eye does. This new ability provides a 3D canvas for self-expression and a suite of new 3D effects on Snapchat.
Spectacles 3 Features
The device is equipped with two HD cameras to capture Snaps in 3D. It also transforms them with 3D effects. Moreover, Snaps captured using Spectacles 3 transfer in HD to “memories” within Snapchat to add new lighting, landscapes and other effects to a scene with a swipe. Snaps can also export to a camera roll as circular, horizontal, square and virtual reality formats. They are then able to be saved, edited and shared anywhere.
Furthermore, users can tap either button for video (up to 60 seconds continuously) or press and hold for still capture. The glasses also supplements high-definition videos with high-fidelity audio from a four-microphone array. Additionally, LED indicator lights notify people when recording, and users will see a light as well.
In addition, it feature a lightweight steel frame with circular lenses and adjustable acetate tips. They come in two color options. Carbon is a classic, monochromatic black with a semimatte finish and high-gloss details. Mineral is a tone inspired by cosmetic hues with a hint-of-gold frame.
Spectacles 3 charges on the go in an included charging case, which stores up to four charges. The full-grain leather case folds flat when not in use. Moreover, it comes with a standard certified USB-C charging cable. Also included is a 3D viewer to relive memories and bring Snaps to life.
