    After years of strong presence in the field of virtual reality and augmented reality headsets, it was expected that Facebook would one day start producing smart glasses as well. The American company unveiled its first smart glasses on Thursday, September 9, 2021 (September 18, 1400). These glasses are called Ray-Ban Stories and as its name suggests, they were made in collaboration with the Ray-Ban brand. The presence of two cameras, a speaker, a microphone and a voice assistant are among the most important features of these smart glasses. However, due to the lack of a display, it is not possible to display digital content (such as virtual reality) on the lenses of these glasses. We will learn more about this product below.

    Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, describes the production of Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses as an important step towards the future; A future that, in his opinion, is no longer at the center of human life in those handsets, and interacting with a device will not prevent man from interacting with the world around him. Andrew Bosworth, director of Reality Labs at Facebook, describes the glasses as saying that Ray-Ban Stories are designed to help people live in the moment so they can stay in touch with the people around them. Are, to be in touch with those who liked to be with them.

    In appearance, these smart glasses are based on the classic Ray-Ban glasses in three models: Round, Wayfarer and Meteor and weigh less than 50 grams. The new device is actually a smart sunglasses and will be sold in a variety of colors and lenses (including photochromic and polarized lenses). It is interesting to know that Ray-Ban Stories glasses are also compatible with medical lenses. However, when you use it, you feel like you are really wearing glasses, not a smart electronic device. On the other hand, the downside is that these glasses are not waterproof at all and can not even resist the splashing of water droplets.

    To take advantage of the smart features of these glasses, you must connect it to your iPhone or Android device. In front of the glasses (near the handles) are two 5-megapixel cameras so that the user can take photos and videos. To do this, a physical button is embedded in the upper right. Given Facebook's past margins for violating privacy laws, you might think that photographing and filming people using these glasses is also a violation of privacy (especially given the Ray-Ban Stories design). Many people do not realize that it is smart). Fortunately, there is a white LED light on the body of the glasses that notifies people when the glasses camera is active while taking photos or videos.

    After capturing photos and videos, they can be transferred to the smartphone via the Facebook View app. According to the manufacturer, it will be possible to edit photos and videos (such as adding 3D effects) and share them through the same application. Of course, the memory of these glasses is limited and finally you can record a few 30-second clips or about 500 photos with it.
