Snap has announced Spectacles 3, pictured, a redesigned version of its augmented reality sunglasses with a sleek new design and an added HD camera to create depth perception.

Snap has positioned the glasses as a limited release that encapsulates efforts to build a new computing platform centred on the face. In the USA they will go on sale at Spectacles.com in November for US$380 – more than twice the cost of last year’s model.

The company says the higher-end version is meant to appeal to a smaller group of fashion-forward creative types.

The glasses’ main selling point is the second camera, which enables Spectacles to capture depth for the first time, along with a suite of 3D effects.
