Ray-Ban Stories Facebook smart glasses have been put on sale this week in Spain. It is a wearable device that citizens of Australia, Canada, the United States, Ireland, Italy and the United Kingdom could already use since last fall. However, now it arrives in Austria, Belgium and Spain, so we have been able to get our hands on them and test them for a few days. In this video, we show you an unboxing of it and we tell you its main features and what is more important, our impressions:
Ray-Ban Stories glasses from Facebook have a sale price of 329 euros. They are an interesting gadget, which releases new features. For example, until now the maximum duration of the videos that could be recorded was 30 seconds, and the duration has been doubled to 60 seconds.
They can be used to take photos and videos by pressing a button on the right temple or you can also use the Facebook assistant. Using simple voice commands, you can be asked to activate the cameras – it includes two 5-megapixel lenses on the front of the glasses – and take photos and videos. All commands begin with the phrase “Hey Facebook.”
The glasses warn that images are being taken by turning on a small white LED. You can also receive calls with them and talk and answer quietly while walking, developing a quality phone call. In the same way, by having small speakers integrated into the temples, they allow us to listen to music -the quality is lower than if we wear headphones in the ear, due to possible external noise- or our favorite podcast.
The new Ray-Ban Stories are used by synchronizing them via Bluetooth with the mobile phone and installing the Facebook View app (free in both the Google Play Store and Apple Play), which is necessary to edit and improve the images captured from the smart glasses. .
