Snap Spectacles Finally Evolve into Full AR Smartglasses with Self-Immersive Super Powers «Next Reality



The biggest win in the race for consumer augmented reality smart glasses to date is not from Apple, Facebook or Google, but Snapchat’s parent company, Snap.

In an Apple-style “one more thing” moment at the Snap Partner Summit keynote on Thursday, CEO Evan Spiegel unveiled the next generation of Spectacles, which have finally evolved into standalone smartglasses capable of displaying AR content.

Don’t Miss: The following Snap goggles are expected to feature AR displays, the report says

With dual waveguide displays, two RGB cameras, four microphones and two stereo speakers, the smartglasses weigh 1

34 grams and can deliver a diagonal field of view of 23 degrees and 2000 nits of brightness. The device runs on Snap’s proprietary Spatial Engine, which has six degrees of freedom and hand tracking, and works without a smartphone nearby (although a smartphone is required to initialize setup).

Users can browse the lens carousel via a capacitive touchpad on the temple or launch lenses via voice scan and then watch the AR effects directly through the smartglasses. Users can also start Lenses with Voice Scan.

A button on the right launches Scan, Snapchat’s visual search, to suggest lenses based on what’s in the field of view, while the left button records 10-second videos with AR effects, which are exported to the connected smartphone. As usual, an LED light lets people know when video recording is taking place.
