Snapchat, under its new name of Snap Inc, recently surprised many of us by announcing its first hardware product – a $130 pair of Google Glass-style 'Spectacles'.
Now, the first Spectacles have gone on sale in Venice Beach in LA – but, as was to be expected from Snap Inc, the launch was far from traditional.
Spectacles are only being sold via cartoony vending machines called Snapbots being placed in 'surprising locations throughout the US.' These vending machines are in the, now iconic, Snapchat yellow with a large 'eye' on the front and receptacle designed to look like a mouth.
