Snapchat Spectacles: How And Where To Get Your Own Pair

Published

on

As you probably heard by now, Snapchat is selling smart glasses that can be used to record video from the wearer’s POV. The Snapchat Spectacles have created loads of hype and many die hard Snapchat users are dying to have them. However, acquiring your own pair is hardly a walk in the park, because Snapchat chose a very unconventional way to distribute them, using vending machines that pop-up in places without notice.

So how does it work?

The Specatacles are equipped with a tiny camera used to capture objects, activity or people when the recording button is pressed, and the videos can only be 10 seconds long. The recorded video is then uploaded to Snapchat via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

So how do I get them?

Snap has come up with a number of ways to sell their Spectacles, though they’re mostly pretty unconventional. Here are your options:

1.Find the Snapbot

Snapbot is a pop up vending machine that stops in a location without notice and stays for 48 hours before moving someplace else. It is the cheapest way of acquiring the Spectacles but also the hardest as well. However, it is not a guarantee to getting your own pair easily, since the Snapbot  may make a stop at an inaccessible place. One such place was the Grand Canyon, though some diehard Snapheads boarded helicopters to Grand Canyon just to get them anyway. The Snapbot’s location is announced here.

You should strictly take note of the time limit (48 hours), just so you won’t waste precious time and money in vain.

2. Get a pair from eBay

eBay is selling the Spectacles for prices ranging from $900 to $4500. However, Snapchat warns of any purchases outside their Snapbot, since it may not provide the original Spectacles.

3. Snapchat’s pop-up store

The store, also known as the Bot house, is found only in New York city at the 5 E 59th Street. Many people visit the Bot house, leading to long lines which can lead to a very long wait. The store operates from 4-10 p.m. on weekdays and 6-12 p.m. on weekends and is closed on every holiday.

4. Rent a pair

Some companies are offering Snapchat Spectacles rental services for a fee. One such company, Lumoid, lets your rent the Spectacles throughout the US for $60 for 3 days. Another company, Jaymode, is renting them only in Los Angeles at $40 for 4 days.
