Snap chat defines itself as a camera company. They make creative lens filters that are copied by all the social media platforms, but one of the products that haven’t been copied are their wearable sunglasses, the Snapchat Spectacles.
We’ve been wearing pairs since they were first released in 2016. We love wearables, so the smaller frames and focus on just capturing video and pics was a great choice as this design allowed them to better blend into social norms.
I really like being able to easily document our weekly projects. Having a camera on your face allows you to show your work hands free! At first I would use it as backup memory, like “were did I put the screw from this project”, but as later models added water resistance, higher resolution and modern frames, I started using them to document everything!
Spectacles latest campaign is profiling all of the people who use them to capture everything from mobile journalism to the point of view of animal rescue centers! Check out all creative perspectives!
Check out the awesome edit on how we use them to show case our work at Aadfruit and don’t forget to follow Adafruit upcoming products and projects! https://www.instagram.com/adafruit/View this post on Instagram
Tinkering with new tech, from @videopixil’s perspective. ⠀ “The coolest thing I’m working on is this little video game console. When you’re growing up playing video games, you never think you can turn that into a career!” — Pedro R. is a 3D printing virtuoso who’s always working on a fun new toy for his son — and sneakily teaching him the basics of science and engineering along the way.
