Nice writeup from Taron Foxworth on Hackernoon about Snapchat’s Spectacles.
Let’s be honest; the Snapchat glasses don’t really have a significant purpose in life. They are just cool. However, I think that’s the point.
Though they don’t add to my life, the Spectacles were by far the best experience I’ve had with any connected device. Since using them for the first time, I was in awe. Snapchat just schooled every connected device maker at their own game. Every company that makes a hardware product can learn from the Spectacles.
How Snapchat solved some of the common IoT problems will not translate from the Spectacles to other devices, but they should use the Spectacles as a source of inspiration. If all devices worked like this, IoT would cause fewer headaches.
