1. Snap will release a new version of its augmented reality sunglasses in November. The "Spectacles 3" will feature updated design and an additional HD camera to create depth of perception. As Casey Newton points out in this review for The Verge, however, the $380 price tag (over twice as much as last year's model which retailed at $150) is likely to put off a lot of Snap's core userbase of high school students. Spectacles allow you to capture photos and videos by tapping a button on top of the glasses, and the device has 4GB of storage, but Newton notes he abandoned previous generations of the device because the snaps didn't automatically sync to a Snapchat account. It's an issue that hasn't been fixed with this latest iteration, which he calls a "missed opportunity." – THE VERGE
