ABOUT THE HARDWARE

The Spectacles glass have a camera with a LED ring Flash on its frame. When the user turns ON the camera on the frame the LED starts flashing, signalling that it has started recording. The camera in the frame has 115° lens which helps to take easy wide angle video. Still we did not get any information about the Camera’s specifications such as pixels, resolution, focal length etc. It has a thick frame which can hold a very slim and thin battery on it to power the camera. This camera is capable of  taking a 10 second of video at a time.

ABOUT THE CONNECTION TO THE APPLICATION

All the media recorded on the Spectacles are directly transferred to the Memories section of the Snapchat application through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The device records the video in new circular image format which can be viewed in both orientation (Landscape and Portrait) in fullscreen.
