Snapchat reveal revolutionary AR specs

Snap has unveiled its first true augmented reality glasses.

The new Spectacles can superimpose AR effects over reality.

Its frames have four built-in microphones, two stereo speakers, and a touchpad.

The glasses use front-facing cameras to detect objects and surfaces so that graphics can interact naturally with the world.

They only have a battery life of 30 minutes. Snap will not be selling Spectacles on the mass market.

Instead, it will be giving them directly to select AR effects creators through an online application program.
