Snap Inc, the maker of the popular Snapchat app has launched the Spectacles 3, the latest hardware tie-in to come from the social media company. The Spectacles 3 feature dual HD cameras capable of shooting 3D still images and 3D video at up to 60 fps. As you would expect from Snap, the Spectacles also feature a wide range of 3D AR-style filters and overlays to add fun and color to the experience.

As you would expect, the integration with the Snapchat app is tight with the Spectacles 3 able to seamlessly transfer images and video into the Snapchat app to add additional effects including lighting, landscapes and other effects to transform a scene. These can then be exported to the camera roll in circular, horizontal, square and VR formats for sharing.

The Spectacles 3 come in Carbon or Mineral colors and are up for pre-order for US$380. They will ship in three to four weeks and will come with a charging case good for four full charges (50 percent quick charge in 15 minutes), a cleaning cloth and Google Cardboard-like 3D viewer. On board storage is capped at 4 GB which is good for 100 3D videos or 1,200 3D photos.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
