Which, for the busy traveler looking to live life and document it at the same time, is pretty cool. I mean, just imagine going to concerts and not having someone’s iPhone blocking your view or going on a hike and sharing your experience without ever having to take out your phone. Saw @snap @spectacles, thought meh. Saw circular video, thought wow. Game changer pic.twitter.com/ehHGPEIU8y — Liam O’Dowd (@liamodowd) September 25, 2016 The glasses come with a self-charging case and have a light that turns on when you’re recording, letting people around you know that they’re on camera. The case will make sure that as you’re gallivanting around the world, you’ll never be without the ability to record your memories — it’s capable of holding a full week’s worth of charges! two things worth noting about @Spectacles: 1) comes with a charging case 2) has a light to indicate when they’re recording pic.twitter.com/20eYDWWjtF — Vicente de Piérola (@vdepdel) September 24, 2016 Honestly, after watching this video, we kinda want some. It’ll make it so that we get to experience our travels and share it with our friends back home — that’s the best compromise!
