Snapchat’s newest innovation has nothing to do with their successful app. Instead they have gone to release a actual physical product called Snapchat Spectacles. And these trendy glasses just went on sale today. Snapchat has also figured out a whole new way to sell these, instead of going the traditional way through retailers, they have built Snapbots. They will be popping up all over the country and their locations will change several times daily.
“Snapbots are our very own vending machines that dispense Spectacles and never seem to stay in one location for too long,” Snap says. Upcoming Snapbot locations are revealed a day ahead of time through an online map.
When you make your way to a Snapbot, simply press one of the large circular buttons to choose between the Black, Coral or Teal coloured glasses. Then just swipe your credit card and the 129$ camera glasses will be yours. Congratulations, you are now the proud owner of the new Snapchat Spectacles.
If you’d like a chance to get your hands on Spectacles, keep your eye on the Snapbot online map and see if one ever shows up at a location near you.
