Mark Zuckerberg demos the first generation of smart glasses technology

Facebook has officially announced smart glasses. The novelty is called Ray-Ban Stories. This device looks like a regular Ray-Ban with tinted lenses and built-in electronics.

Mark Zuckerberg and Rocco Basilico showcased Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses technology.

Photo and video

Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses have two 5 megapixel cameras, which are located along the edges of the frame, which allows you to take photos as well as record 30-second videos.
Recording begins with a simple push of a button on the bow of the glasses.

You can also start recording videos using a voice command. On the frame of the glasses, there is a white diode, which notifies of the shooting of a video, as well as an indicator of the charge level of the glasses. The smart glasses are equipped with their own memory, enough space to store 30 half-minute videos or 500 pictures.


The glasses can be connected to a smartphone via the proprietary Facebook View application (Android and iOS). In addition, the temples of this gadget complement the built-in speakers and microphones so that the glasses can be used to listen to music and answer phone calls. At the same time, using the touch panel on the right bow, you can adjust the audio volume.

Extra options

According to Facebook, Ray-Ban Stories are capable of providing approximately 6 hours of battery life. At the same time, it takes about 1 hour to fully charge the glasses.

For those who want to become the owner of such a smart and stylish accessory, 3 frame options, 4 colors, and 6 types of lenses will be available.
