This was clarified from materials published by the Federal Communications Commission of the United States (FCC). The material is in a condition that it is largely omitted from the original, and there are no reference materials such as photographs and manuals at all, but from the wording such as "product description described as" wearable video camera "and" 002 "etc. , It seems almost certain that it is Spectacles with some improvements added.

Spectacles is a device with a built-in camera on the left and right of the frames of eyeglasses, you can shoot a movie of 10 seconds to 30 seconds by pressing a button near the lens and transfer it to the smartphone.

Also, there is also information that the release date is unknown, but the price is targeting around 300 dollars (about 31,000 yen). Snap is not returning a comment on inquiries from Variety.
