The new Ray-Ban stories have been announced. These smart glasses are the result of the latest collaboration between Facebook and EssilorLuxottica that allows users to take photos and videos, take calls and more.
“Today we’re excited to bring Ray-Ban Stories to market: smart glasses that give you a new way to take photos and videos, share your adventures, listen to music or take calls – so you can talk to friends, family and the world around you. “
The Ray-Ban Stories were created in collaboration with Facebook and EssilorLuxottica. They will be available in 20 different style combinations. You can get them online and at select retail stores in the United States and other markets including Australia, Italy, the United Kingdom, and others.
You have two built-in 5 MP cameras that allow you to share your perspective on life, at least in some way, as other people can see the world “through your eyes”. With these cameras, Ray-Ban Stories can take photos and videos up to 30 seconds in length using the record button or using the voice commands of the Facebook assistant for hands-free action. And don’t worry about being surprised as they come with a hardwired record LED that lights up every time you take a picture or video.
In the audio department, we find that the Ray-Ban Stories have built-in open-ear speakers and an audio array with three microphones that provide richer voice and sound for calls and videos.
Ray-Ban Stories works with the new Facebook View app so you can share your stories and memories with friends and social media followers. With the Facebook View app on your iOS and Android devices, you can import, edit, and share content to your favorite social media apps, including Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, and more.
“Ray-Ban Stories are available in 20 variations, in classic Ray-Ban styles – Wayfarer, Wayfarer Large, Round and Meteor – and in five colors with a range of lenses including clear, sun, transition and prescription to suit you Choose a style that’s right for you. “
Now, if you’re interested in snapping up a pair, get ready to cough up $ 299. There are several models to choose from, so you will most likely find something that suits your style. In my case, I think I’ll skip until I see them aviator style.
