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!):
