  • Snap in augmented reality push launches new Spectacles version

Of course, the freshly unveiled Spectacles 3 are technically not powered by virtual reality technology, instead confirming a rumor from no less than nine months ago.

Spectacles 3 will be available in two new colors: Carbon, which is just black, and Mineral, which is like a sheer gold beige. In comparison, the Spectacles 3 starts at $380 which is a pretty steep price, though the new features and HD cameras seem to justify that price tag to a certain extent.

From a construction standpoint, the new Spectacles employ a "strong, lightweight frame with circular lenses and adjustable acetate tips".

On Tuesday, the company announced Spectacles 3, the third generation of its wearable cameras designed for snapping video and photos in 3D format and seamlessly upload them to Snapchat. And similar to previous models, the Spectacles 3 come with an included charging case that holds four charges worth of juice, along with a full-grain leather exterior for a slightly more luxurious feel.

The Spectacles 2 was priced at $150. According to various reports, however, the glasses will be able to capture 70 videos and more than 200 photos on a single charge. Built to work with Snapchat's 3D effects, Spectacles 3's dual cameras provide a depth of field, meant for use with Snapchat's AR features, which have always been the missing element in Spectacles.

Spectacles 3 is the most expensive version released by the company. The integrated 4GB of memory can store around 100 videos or 1,200 photos.

Compared to the previous two Spectacles, the Spectacles 3 are not water-resistant which is a bit of a bummer. You can preorder a pair on the Spectacles website.

Snap has notoriously had trouble selling Spectacles in high enough numbers to offset manufacturing costs, due in part to its initial botched viral rollout but also to the product's lack of features and usefuless outside of Snapchat. If they don't, the company may have to write off millions of dollars (again) on unsold pairs.
