Snap goes 3D with Spectacles 3, coming this fall

Snap announced the third generation of its smart glasses, Spectacles 3.

The new Spectacles 3 are equipped with two HD cameras and can record 3D, 60 fps, first-person video. From there, you'll be able to wirelessly sync those videos (and photos) to your phone, and adorn them with a suite of Snapchat's 3D effects. 

New Spectacles come with a leather case that doubles as a charger.
