Have you ever been in a situation where you really wanted to take a picture or video of something, but your hands were full? The creators of Snapchat attempted to solve that problem with a new product.


The new device, dubbed Spectacles, is a camera you can wear like glasses.


The glasses capture photos and videos in high definition with the click of a single button. If a moment is passing and you don’t have time to pull out your phone, a simple click of the button on the glasses lets you capture the moment.


As far as sunglasses/cameras go, the Spectacles are pretty durable. They are water-resistant, making them the perfect device to capture beach days and pool parties. In addition to the durability, the camera can charge on the go in as quick as an hour. The camera syncs images and videos to your phone whenever they are nearby, letting you send them via Snapchat or export the files for use somewhere else.


The Spectacles are available in three different styles and begin at $150. The glasses come with the camera, a charging case, a charging cable and a cleaning cloth.


Look at the camera’s specific specifications and order online.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
