Fashion Technology Stories

Welcome to the world of lost privacy.  However, it certainly is trendy and a great idea for wearable technology.  Fabulously trend worthy leap forward by Facebook & Ray-Ban.

Ray-Ban Stories - Wayfarer, Round, and Meteor.

Ray-Ban Stories Sunglasses

When we say "welcome to the world of lost privacy", that is NOT in reference to Facebook utilizing data.  We only mean that the world will have tons more live video recordings & photos.  It will be much harder to see that someone is recording you from their sunglasses than if they were holding up a phone or camera.  Facebook / Ray-Ban have taken steps to add a light on the front of the glasses so that people can tell when the camera is being utilized.  

Ray-Ban Stories On Light

We are guessing that some people will figure out away around having that light source visible.  

Anyway, in our opinion the glasses are super cool and will be fun for millions or billions of people world wide.

A few of the fabulously trendy features for these sunglasses.

Take photos and videos hands-free and stay immersed in the moment. Capture from a first-person perspective and enjoy consistently high quality content thanks to the automatic light adjustment and stereoscopic photo depth.

Discrete open-ear speakers allow you to seamlessly switch between taking a call and ordering a coffee. The 3 built-in microphones capture sound in all directions so you get rich voice and sound quality for calls and videos.

Pause your song, take a photo or record a video in a single touch with the hyper-responsive touchpad and capture button.

How do you charge this wearable technology so that you don't miss out on photo opportunities or phone calls?

Charge your frames on the go with the compact, portable charging case. And a fully charged frame will capture and sync up to 50 videos, or up to 200 photos.

How do you share or save content from your eyewear?

Facebook View is your smart glasses operating system and content sharing companion. Once you’ve downloaded the app and set up your Ray-ban Stories you can import and edit captures, create and share unique content, and manage settings. Download it from App Store or Google Play⁽²⁾.
