one pair of ray-bans made in partnership with facebook two basically hidden cameras so many people who don't know you're recording them would you have known i was recording you with these sunglasses yeah because these sunglasses have a camera in it this is a terrible idea did you know i was recording you no i had no idea i would not have known because it says raven now before you start calling me a total creeper let's
00:33
talk about these shades and why i've been recording random people these are not your old tom cruise ray-ban wayfarer glasses although some might say they're risky business these are ray-ban stories a 299 dollar pair of high-tech glasses made with facebook tap here and this 5 megapixel camera records video of whatever you're looking at this small led light is supposed to signal to people you're recording the idea of camera equipped glasses definitely not new
01:03
there was google glass which didn't go so well they don't work anymore and more recently snapchat spectacles similar to those these are meant to let you put down your smartphone and record without looking at a screen but here is what's new super cool classic looking sunglasses with high quality cameras and microphones most don't notice that tiny little recording light and don't think twice when you're wearing these glasses they basically just think you look awesome
01:34
which could basically make these spy glasses so i devised my own little social experiment this week talk to as many people as i could and see if they knew i was recording some thought they were creepy others thought they were cool supporting you right now and yes i told people i was recording quickly after hitting the button and got everyone's permission to use their footage in this video let's start with the cool and how these work tap once on this button and you begin recording video
02:08
video was cut off after 30 seconds since yes these were designed for facebook and instagram stories long press and you can snap a photo that's where the second camera comes in it gathers depth information so you can apply these fun effects to photos afterwards you can also say hey facebook take a picture the quality isn't exactly what you'd get with the latest iphone but it's not bad for sharing but why would you want any of this well these are actually really fun and
02:40
useful in those situations where you don't want to just take your phone out plus the first person point of view is just awesome whoa oh yeah facebook specifically says don't drive with these on and yeah they're not waterproof either those photos and videos are stored to four gigabytes of storage in the glasses but they also sync with a new app called facebook view they don't automatically go to facebook or instagram in the view app you can download them to your phone and easily share them to any place you'd like
03:13
facebook says none of the photos in the app are used for personalized ads only if you share them do the app's terms apply there are also speakers in here so you can listen to music or take calls when paired with your phone what do you mean you're calling from your glasses you now have a phone in your glasses well they're just regular sunglasses but with cameras and microphones now the coolness is almost the reason they're so creepy no one expects when you're wearing these that you've got two cameras on your face
03:44
plus the led indicator is very small i'm talking somewhere between the size of a poppy seed and a sesame seed very dry very very dry unlike the big indicators on the snapchat spectacles people just don't notice it and outdoors the light is even harder to see what's impossible to know that i'm recording you right now can you see now i can facebook says this gesture of bringing your hand up to your temple to record is another signal to people that you're
04:23
recording but lots of people didn't pick up on that either and when you set up your stories the view app suggests that you do a demo for people to let them know how the capture led works the company also says that the 30 second recording limit is another privacy measure to ensure people aren't being recorded at length without their knowledge still they should have made this indicator bigger and maybe red or green i'm not saying they needed to put something the size of this on there but something that was at least noticeable
04:53
so what did i learn here from this non-scientific social experiment years ago it was hard to imagine smartphones with cameras everywhere but we eventually learned that this meant someone was recording now the miniaturization of technology into sleek looking glasses is coming these ray-bans are just the start but with that we at the very least need a bigger indicator that these aren't just classic sunglasses but cameras capable of recording everyone we meet and yes nice lady i met in the park
05:24
i do work for the fbi
