A newly christened Snapchat debuted its first hardware product on Friday — Spectacles.
Snap, Inc.'s $130 glasses will able to record 10-second videos from the wearer's vantage point, according to the Wall Street Journal. Spectacles' 115-degree camera lens closely mirrors people's line of sight.
"When I got the footage back and watched it, I could see my own memory, through my own eyes — it was unbelievable," co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel told the Journal.

The company says its wireless video camera, touted as one of the smallest in the world, is capable of taking a day's worth of Snaps on a single charge. The camera is intergrated into sunglasses that will be available in three colors.
Spectacles will connect directly to a user's Snapchat account via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connections to "transfer your Memories directly into the app in our brand new circular video format," Snap Inc. said.
The glasses are expected to be available sometime this fall.
