SNAPCHAT SPECTACLES SOLD VIA VENDING MACHINE


Yesterday the highly-anticipated Snapchat Spectacles were finally available for sale.  However, they were sold in an interesting fashion.  The first hardware offering from Snapchat was sold via Minon-like vending machines. Snapbots as they are called, dispensed Spectacles in either Black, Coral or Teal, giving you an opportunity to try them first on virtually via an integrated AR display. Snapbots accept debit or credit cards, and will process your $129 purchase in around 10 seconds. Snapbots can be found using a locator tool on Snapchat’s website, which as of now shows one in LA near Venice Beach in Oakwood, which is where the company is headquartered.
