Snap ‘Narrowing’ AR Spectacles ‘Investment Scope’ Amid Major Layoffs
Snap just laid off 20% of its staff. How affected is its AR Spectacles project?
Spectacles was revealed over a year ago. It’s a standalone device with two cameras to perform spatial tracking of the world as well as hand tracking and video capture. It reaches an impressive 2000 nits of brightness, making it one of the only AR devices usable outdoors. However, the field of view is a tiny 26.3 degrees diagonal and the battery lasts just 30 minutes.
