Description
Remember Spectacles, Snapchat’s video-recording sunglasses that debuted to great fanfare only for the company to lose $40 million after sales cratered? Well, another company is taking a chance on the concept with a pair of smart sunglasses called ACE Eyewear. While Spectacles could only post directly to Snapchat, wearers can use ACE Eyewear to live stream video and post clips and stills to Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube via a smartphone app.
