In this changing world, keeping in touch with the people around us or even those who are far away is a necessity.
It’s not just about staying connected, but also about keeping our perspective of what we have in front of our eyes.
Ray-Ban is introducing a new collection of smart glasses known as Stories. These glasses, which are part of the Ray-Ban x Facebook collection, are designed to help you capture your life through photography and video.
Let’s see what these glasses have to offer us.
What Are Ray-ban Stories?
Ray-Ban Stories is a new pair of smart glasses that are made by Ray-Ban and Facebook.
The company has been making sunglasses for years, so it’s not surprising that they’re trying out this new product line.
Besides, Facebook is always pointing at the development of new ways to stay connected with the world.
Ray-Ban Stories are designed to look exactly like their non-connected counterparts, so you won’t notice any difference between them when you’re wearing them.
The glasses will come in three different styles: wayfarer, round, and meteor. Each one with 5 different colors.
Features of Ray-ban Stories
Ray-ban Stories smart glasses are designed for young people with an active lifestyle who want to express their individuality through their photos and videos.
But not only photos and videos, but they also have other features such as:
Stay connected with your phone through Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0.
Design and Weight
The frames are made from lightweight aluminum, so they feel comfortable on your face all day long.
They also feature polarized lenses to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays while making sure you can see clearly in any weather condition.
The built-in camera on Ray-Ban Stories captures everything that’s going on around you in full HD video and audio quality in real time.
Besides, they adjust the light of the space where you are.
They have a dual camera of 5MP, taking photos of 2592×1944 pixels and recording videos of 1184×1184 pixels at 30 frames per second.
They are compatible with iOS 13+ and Android 8.1+.
The battery can last up to three days on one charge and you can charge them through a case.
However, the battery life will depend on how you use it.
The glasses have integrated 2 discreet speakers with surround sound and 3 built-in microphones.
With the Facebook Assistant, you can take photos, record videos, and send messages. Just use the command “Hey Facebook”.
They can store about 500 photos and up to 30 clips of 30 seconds.
How do Ray-ban Stories work?
Ray-Ban Stories collect the data necessary for the glasses to function, such as the battery, Wi-Fi connections, or Facebook log in data.
You can choose to share additional data, such as the number of photos taken or the time the video was taken.
These settings can be changed at any time if you wish. In addition, all images or videos are encrypted on the glasses.
You can only pair these smart glasses with one Facebook View account.
Also, if something happens to your glasses and someone tries to use them with a different Facebook account or phone than yours, all data left on the glasses will be automatically deleted.
