Facebook launches $299 Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses that let users take photos and videos, listen to music, and take phone calls.
Ray-Ban Stories look like regular frames and have two-front facing cameras for capturing video and photos. You sync them with a companion app called Facebook View, where you can edit and share videos and photos. They have a button for recording, or you can say "Hey Facebook, take a video" to control them hands-free. They don't have displays in the lenses, speakers on both sides of the frame let you play sound from your phone over Bluetooth or take a call. There's a touchpad on the side of the frame lets you change the volume or play and pause what you're hearing. They come with a case that also charges the glasses. They'll be available pretty much anywhere Ray-Bans are sold, including LensCrafters and Sunglasses Hut stores. They're currently being sold online and in stores in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Italy, Ireland, and Australia.
