The camera phone was considered rather outlandish when it was first unveiled. After all, what did it have to do with anything? It's like putting a blender on a bicycle. Utterly unrelated and baffling. Of course, camera phones actually allowed us to take a photo practically anywhere, and when mobile phones because smartphones, it allowed us to share and edit those photos and then videos over our many forms of social media. But what if you could make cameras even MORE convenient? Well that's what Snapchat - or rather, the newly renamed Snap Inc - have done. Spectacles - promotional sunglasses with an in-built micro action camera.


  • Spectacles allow for hands-free recording and quick capturing of moments, making it easier to document experiences.
  • With a built-in camera, the sunglasses offer a first-person perspective and discreet recording.
  • Camera sunglasses combine sun protection, convenience, and style, making them an appealing accessory for various activities.


A New Way of Photography

Just think about it, you're walking along, and something photo or video worthy happens. But by the time you whip out your phone and select camera, that moment might have already passed. Well, all these require you to do, is hit a button on your sunglasses and them bam! Ten seconds of video, with a new one recorded each time you press the button. The sunnies also wirelessly connect to your smart devices to upload the images. Which seems incredibly convenient when you think about.

This could be the next step in convenient camera technology. It could be like Action Cameras, or selfie sticks, the next big thing in photography related products and accessories, and something that you could soon put your own brand on. Of course, it'll probably lead to an endless stream of semi-pointless short videos on social media, but it is what it is.
