Some people wait in line for TVs on Black Friday… and some people wait for Snapchat Spectacles. What’s that? They’re the stylish glasses that Snapchat just released to shoot video… and they’re causing quite a frenzy for the holidays this year.

People are waiting in 6-hour lines just to get them. One Twitter user summed it up perfectly, saying  “All I want for Christmas is Spectacles:”

What the glasses look like: 

The round glasses are fitted with two cameras at the temple, so the wearer can actively shoot video for their Snapchat stories without engaging a phone (just press a button on the side and a light goes on while you’re shooting). They wirelessly connect to your phone and charge in the case. They’re actually cool, too, and come in black, red and a cool turquoise blue:

What the video looks like: 

The glasses produce a video in a round frame. It sort of has a birds eye view. This is what it looks like:

How to get them: 

Unfortunately, Snapchat Spectacles are not available online or in stores–the only way to get them is a Snapbot vending machine, which the company is strategically placing around the country to cause an even greater stir. Use the Snapchat Spectacles site to find a Bot near you, and also check Twitter using the hashtag #Spectacles to find where people are getting theirs (once a Bot pops up, you can bet that people will start posting about it!):
