  2. Crazy_Sloth on December 3, 2021 at 11:22 am

    Fkn ads

    I didn’t even think about the creep factor until he mentioned it. Now I can’t forget it.

  4. Neuro Philosophers on December 3, 2021 at 11:30 am

    Anything with the name Facebook is dead

    Facebook finally solves the age old problem: How can you guarantee she won’t want a second date?

    I guess personal privacy is a thing of the past. People continue to allow these invasive technologies into their lives. People already stick cameras and wire taps in their homes. Its only a matter of time before it becomes mandatory.

    Here’s a question for you all. How would you feel if the government made it mandatory for us to stick Amazon Echos and Alexas in our homes? How would you feel if the government made it mandatory to have a Facebook account with your real name and personal info? How would you feel if it was mandatory to wear glasses with cameras in it? How would you feel if it was mandatory to stay at home and use VR headsets for work and socializing? You probably wouldn’t like that right?

    30 second video no good👎

  8. popitn2nd on December 3, 2021 at 11:35 am

    There’s 2 sizes on this frame. Is that the larger version or standard size?

  9. Victor Spoils Media on December 3, 2021 at 11:36 am

    Should have unlimited record time not just 30 seconds

  10. slicvm on December 3, 2021 at 11:36 am

  20. Sarah Blyth on December 3, 2021 at 11:44 am

    Will I have the right to tear them off people’s faces and smash them under my foot?

  21. dynasty4851 on December 3, 2021 at 11:46 am

    Good I just need them to record videos and not look like a spy

  22. SlightlyMad25 on December 3, 2021 at 11:46 am

    Oh, lovely. Another tool for perverts to use. Jfc.

  23. Jase King on December 3, 2021 at 11:47 am

  24. Tdot G h on December 3, 2021 at 11:48 am

  27. Applause London on December 3, 2021 at 11:51 am

    Its working really good I am used this glasses response is really nice .

  28. iTzNoxy on December 3, 2021 at 11:51 am

    30 second video is laughable. Let me run the entire battery down on one video if I really want to.

  29. Philip J. Fry on December 3, 2021 at 11:53 am

    It’s amazing people talk of privacy while writing a comment on "the internet". The level of ignoramus in the world has really reached soaring heights.

  30. Bly on December 3, 2021 at 11:53 am

    I am interested in these but was curious if there is another way to access content then using the
    storage app (designed by Facebook)? If I have to use it does anyone know what it’s policy on privacy is? Any if my content would be online with blue tooth would hate to have all my content available on some internet archive would hate if say I wanna make some "Private/Personal" dirty videos with me and my chick (with her consent of course 😉 Defintely don’t want her family (mom,lil brother, lil sister,friends,etc) scrolling the internet one day too see There perfect lil angel Booking my whammer to earn herself a shot of love .

  32. Andrew Castillo on December 3, 2021 at 11:55 am

    30 sec video is a joke I’ll keep looking

  33. Jacob Ortega TV on December 3, 2021 at 11:58 am

    Definitely cool

  34. Documentary Detective II on December 3, 2021 at 11:58 am

    So what happens when people wear these to the beach or film women sunbathing?

  35. little cat on December 3, 2021 at 11:59 am

    It is cool not creepy

  36. Victor Rodriguez on December 3, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    I have it and battery life is terrible

  37. sam and colby fan on December 3, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    Alot of people will be visiting hospital wearing these when the red dot is on while walking past somone that doesnt want to be recorded

  38. HyperSole on December 3, 2021 at 12:04 pm

    A pervs dream come true

  39. Nolan Cass on December 3, 2021 at 12:04 pm

    @4:10 literally what a creep shot would look like 📸 😅

  40. Chris Stout on December 3, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    If I see anyone wearing these, I’m going to sneak up from behind, grab them off their head, and punch them in the face.

  41. Dave Ballard on December 3, 2021 at 12:08 pm

    I used to be a big fan of Ray-Ban. Used to be.

  42. 4XeoN The oNe7 on December 3, 2021 at 12:08 pm

    Imagine this to be like cyberpunk. With holograms we could see. I like the whole hearing music or making calls with it to. Being able to see stuff with these glasses would be sicm

  43. Arizona Guerrilla on December 3, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    Pervert glasses

  44. DJ 88 on December 3, 2021 at 12:14 pm

    Creepy

  45. ST Got No Videos on December 3, 2021 at 12:14 pm

    I called these the next level of FB spying on us, and that anyone signing up to them is an utter fool.
    Facebook "Ray-banned" my account.

  46. Poppy Popper on December 3, 2021 at 12:15 pm

    creepy.

  47. Pete Mitchel on December 3, 2021 at 12:16 pm

    Seriously people. I know not all tech is bad. But when the source is bad it becomes bad. Can we all just reject this garbage until we have our countries back in order ? Maybe not descend into more problems because of dumb trivial stuff. Lol

  48. Choose2Live C2L on December 3, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    I absolutely love mine so much! Capturing candid moments with family and friends is the best….my nephew acts completely different when you pull the camara out to record him. I’m sure some ppl will use them for evil and that’s a shame. I think I love the idea of them more than the execution. No zoom feature, basically unusable at night, poor camara quality, mic volume to low..unless in a completely quiet room, battery life is terrible, videos only 30 seconds long (needs to be a least 60 seconds imo)…and sometimes the glasses are glitchy – connection issues etc. At 300 I can’t and wouldn’t recommend them to anyone…that notwithstanding I love mine and happy I purchased them and pray the V2 (if not discontinued) will be a big leap forward.

  49. Fox on December 3, 2021 at 12:18 pm

    huh huh ya remember the spectacles from snapchat ? Exactly.

  50. Brian Agee on December 3, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    Not cool. Creepy all the way. It’s not even a question. The world is opening up for pervs and predators.
