Facebook's first smart glasses are here: Ray-Ban Stories. They look pretty normal, right?
Trying them on, I feel like... I'm wearing Ray-Bans.
The glasses have cameras in the corners of the frame, plus an LED light that glows when it's recording.
The sunglasses come in three styles, multiple colors. I tried the Wayfarers in glossy black.
These glasses are made to connect with your Android phone or iPhone with a new app, called Facebook View, that imports photos and videos but doesn't share them or upload them until you want (you can also save them to your local camera roll).
The glasses record 30-second video clips, or they take snapshots. They also work as glasses-based headphones, too.
A top button controls the camera shutter. You can also just say, "Hey Facebook, take a photo," or tell Facebook to shoot a video.
Microphones and speakers mean these can listen to music, take phone calls, and do whatever you use headphones for. Sound quality is just OK. It's not as good as Bose Frames, another pair of audio glasses/
Prescription lenses could be popped in too (I haven't done that yet -- I wore contacts).
Compared to the Oculus Quest 2, these glasses are small.
The Ray-Ban Stories, compared to an old pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses. They look pretty similar.
Here's a picture I shot while wearing the Ray-Ban Stories.
