Mark Zuckerberg just announced these glasses that look like something out of a spy or secret agent movie. The new Ray-Ban Stories are smart glasses that preserve the brand's classic design and that many music icons have used in the last decade.
These incredible glasses have two front cameras of five megapixels each, which will allow you to record videos of up to 30 seconds and take photos to share them instantly on your Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp accounts.
The lenses have a small capture button on the top of the temple, but you can also activate the camera by voice command. In addition, they have two small speakers built into the bottom of each rod, which will allow you to take calls, listen to music or podcast.
Zuckerberg said the glasses put privacy first. In addition, they have a power button that signals when they are working and when they are not. The creator of Facebook ensures that once turned off, the glasses can not take a photo or video.
These new glasses will cost $ 299, and will be launched in Italy, the United States, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. But they will soon reach other countries in the world. So far they are available in 20 different designs and colors.
For his part, Rocco Basilico of EssilorLuxottica, in charge of the design of the Ray-Ban, said that Facebook technology was integrated into the classic design of the Ray-Ban, lenses that have been part of pop culture for decades and that have been a symbol of free expression.
It seems that Facebook has teamed up with a company that runs a serious profile and a certain counterculture to soften the accusations of selling private information and its "failures" in the privacy of users.
The new lenses with Ray-Ban are an exciting technology because we have seen it in movies, but we will have to wait for the uses to be put to it and the consequences of its introduction to the world. The truth is that seeing Mark Zuckerberg with the glasses on is a bit of a bad feeling. They do not believe it? Technically there is nothing wrong, but something does not add up.
