The Snapchat Spectacles look to enable users to record point-of-view (POV) video recording capabilities without having them ever touch their smartphone. Announced by the newly named Snap Inc., the Spectacles come in three funky color options and will stream content directly from the frame, to a user's Snapchat story.

The Spectacles are outfitted with a miniature video camera on the corner of the lens that is capable of recording a days worth of activities thanks to the built-in battery pack. They offer a 115-degree field of view to capture the human perspective as it's happening for a more personal approach to social media content.

The Snapchat Spectacles connect to a smartphone via Bluetooth or WiFi to transfer Memories directly. Small lights on the social media sunglasses indicate to those around the wearer that recording is taking place.
