The smart glasses on Facebook and Ray-Ban are called Ray-Ban Stories. However, there are not many stories to tell about glasses, as they do not present the much-praised Augmented Reality (AR) capability. Instead, you get dual-lens video camera cramped stylish, prescription glasses.
The glasses, called Ray-Ban Stories, have little to do with well-known Facebook branding other than packaging. There seems to be no other branding of Facebook in the product other than the box.
The new products have previously been touted as a great addition to Facebook’s growing product line, combining Ray-Ban’s excellent production record with Facebook’s design philosophy to build devices with more functionality and features. As the Facebook CEO stated earlier, the new smart glasses may be an intermediate offer because in the near future we are moving towards a fully enhanced reality. There will be more advanced models in the pipeline with more AR credentials and functions.
Ray-Ban Stories comes in three options: Wayfire, Meteor, and Round. The Company provides the option of choosing the lenses. They want with options ranging from sunglasses and clear lenses to prescription lenses. They are equipped with a 5 megapixel dual camera that can capture up to 500 photos and up to 30 seconds of video clips. By using via the USB-C port battery can charged within one hour. It can last up to 6 hours.
The product is priced at $ 299 and will go on sale today through Ray-Ban stores and the Ray-Ban website. The glasses will be available from September 14 at Luxotica retail locations, including Sunglass Hut and Lens Crafters.
Global availability details are also expected to come out in a timely manner. We expect a decent reception for the long-awaited Facebook and Ray-Ban smart glasses.
