Snap Spectacles for 3D images
Snap has unveiled
new-generation Spectacles sunglasses that can take 3D pictures to share on its
Snapchat messaging service known for ephemeral posts.
Spectacles 3, set for release late this year, were described as a limited release and priced at $380, more than twice the price of an ‘Original’ version available at the Southern California company's website. It is an improvement on Spectacles sunglasses with built-in cameras that synchronise wirelessly with smartphones to share pictures or video snippets to Snapchat launched in late 2016.
Two HD cameras on
either side of the frame capture depth and dimension the way your eyes do, and
power new augmented reality creative tools. It is easy to reimagine your favourite
moments with a suite of new 3D effects. You can create your own magic moment,
or add new lighting, landscapes, and other magical effects to an entire scene
with a swipe.
