SnapBot & Spectacles Arrive… Crowds Go Wild

SnapBot & Spectacles Arrive… Crowds Go Wild

Back in September, we reported Snapchat would begin selling camera glasses soon. Well, evidently that day has arrived. The company, now called Snap Inc, unveiled the Snapbot late last week. Think of it as a bright yellow vending machine for the company’s $130 digital eyeware, called Spectacles. The Snapbot won’t be in every mall or grocery store for a while though. For now, it’s making elusive appearances in California. Unlike Google Glass which looked ridiculous, people are liking the aesthetic of Spectacles. In fact, the Snapbot is selling out in mere hours. If you’ve absolutely got to have these new glasses without waiting, there are some folks selling them on eBay… for up to $5000 a pair. Yikes.
