You can now buy Spectacles online, and not from eBay
by Damian M. / Feb 20, 2017, 7:54 AM
When Snap introduced its first hardware product, the Spectacles, it made some buzz. With so many Snapchat users, a head-mounted camera did make sense. Especially one that looked more like normal sunglasses, rather than the Google Glass.
In order to drive demand up, Snap decided to adopt a rather unusual distribution method. Up until now, Spectacles were only sold in a single pop-up store in New York and a number of pop-up vending machines around the country. In most cases, the supply in the vending machines was not even remotely enough for all people on the lines to get a pair. Therefore, the Spectacles started appearing on eBay for crazy prices.
However, you can now buy a pair of Spectacles from the comfort of your own home. In fact, this will be the only distribution method for the time being, as Snap is closing down the pop-up shop and putting the vending machines on ice, at least temporarily.
The glasses can be bough from their own dedicated website, and they cost the same $129.99 as before. They're also available in the same colors.

These, funny enough might sell more then google glasses if you ask me, since snapchat is popular. But it is going to run headlong into the problems of privacy invasion, like......full throttle head on into a wall.

They'll definitely outsell Google Glass considering glass never left developmental stages. And the privacy invasion is going to be ridiculous. All these cameras just waiting for the government to utilize for their own needs. People taking unwanted pictures without consent

Of course. Glass was $1500 vs $129 for these glasses.
