Facebook Launches Its First Connected Glasses With Ray-Ban

By YEET MAGAZINE | Updated 1648 GMT (0048 HKT) September 16, 2021

Watch Mark Zuckerberg announce new Facebook and Ray -Hands-on with-Facebook and Ray-Ban's $299 camera -With Ray-Ban x Facebook-Facebook's Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses: Cool or creepy?-Ray-Ban® & Facebook-Ray-Ban and Facebook introduce Ray-Ban Stories -facebook...

In partnership with Ray-Ban, the American group markets glasses - sunglasses or prescription - capable of taking photos and videos. The social network sees it as a small step towards augmented reality and the metaverse.

Introducing Ray-Ban Stories, our first generation of smart glasses designed in collaboration with Facebook. Ray-Ban Stories are the new way to capture, share and listen. Watch Mark Zuckerberg and Rocco Basilico demo the technology and get inspired by Creators Pete Halverson, Va$htie and TatchI, sharing their Ray-Ban Stories experience.

They have the Ray-Ban look and logo, but they are no ordinary sunglasses or eyeglasses. Facebook unveiled the Ray-Ban-Stories on Thursday, its first connected glasses designed with the Franco-Italian Essilor Luxottica. Equipped with discreet cameras on the mounts and speakers in the branches, they allow you to listen to music or make calls, but above all to take photos and videos on the fly and post them on social networks .

Facebook is certainly today a giant of online advertising, which represents 98% of the $ 85 billion collected by the group in 2020, thanks to its eponymous social network and the two other essential apps acquired by the group - Instagram and WhatsApp . But for years, he has relied on augmented reality and virtual reality technologies. Facebook notably markets Oculus headsets. Even if the success of these high-tech accessories remains limited, sales represent 500 million dollars over the last six months, up 36%.

A step towards the "metaverse"

The Ray-Ban Stories are part of this strategy. They don't come with augmented reality features - that is, the ability to overlay digital elements on top of reality. But they help to familiarize the general public with these connected gadgets. Especially since the previous attempts of the other tech giants - in particular the Google glass or the Snap glasses at the end of 2016 - have not been really successful. The high price and privacy concerns quickly took precedence over consumer curiosity.

If Facebook is trying its luck, with a model marketed for 300 dollars, it is also to take a small step further in the direction of the "metaverse" - this futuristic universe mixing physical and virtual worlds that Mark Zuckerberg describes as "an embodied Internet whose you are an integral part ”and in which he hopes to one day be a major player.

In Angkor Wat (Cambodia), I saw an American tourist (I suppose) with $ 400 RayBans on her nose making a scandal over a bottle of water sold by a kid for 1000 riel (25 cents). Okay, that's right, it's a bit expensive. But for this kid maybe it was the possibility to eat something. I said to myself : "I hope that tonight you are going to make the same scandal with the bartender at your 4 star hotel who will ask you $ 10 for your tequila Sunrise".

Why don't pilots wear polarized sunglasses ?

Marc Regard

Formerly Former Captain Boeing and others September 29, 2020

I have two pairs of eyeglasses and sunglasses and non-polarized view at all times, it is an obligation for a pilot for whom, with declining eyesight, it has always been a Rayban for decades. It is worn on the belt like a winchester on a Harley or on a Mustang.

A polarized lens at the exit of a tunnel is a big deal, ditto in airspace !

The inconvenients.

Despite all the advantages of this type of glass, there is a downside ! It may be difficult to read LCD (liquid crystal) screens such as smartphones, or GPS.

This response may not be an accurate translation of Alex lieberman

in YEET MAGAZINE  in English  :What are some interesting facts in the history of business?

Original answer: What are the most interesting facts in the business world?

Companies and people have really done crazy things over the years.

The Top 10 :

Nokia was founded in 1865 as a paper manufacturer and is named after the Nokianvirta River in Finland.

Facebook is mostly blue because Mark Zuckerberg suffers from red-green color blindness.

Colonel Sanders started KFC at the age of 65 and his secret recipe was rejected 1009 times before a restaurant finally added it to the menu.

In 1937, McDonald's was started by the McDonald brothers as the Airdrome hot dog stand, and didn't offer burgers or milkshakes until 1948.

Samsung accounts for 20% of South Korea's GDP.

The red and white Coca-Cola logo is recognized by 94% of the world's population.

The first YouTube video was uploaded on April 23, 2005, featuring its co-founder Jawed Karim at the San Diego Zoo.

Amazon employees work 2 days a year in customer service. Even Jeff Bezos does it.

The Ford F-150 truck carries 150 million lines of code with it. It is essentially a computer on wheels (very robust).

Ronald Wayne, Apple's third founder , sold his shares for just $ 800 after 12 days at the company. His stake would be worth over $ 35 billion today.

The 10 most recent :

The founders of Reddit created tons of fake accounts to boost community and engagement from the early days.

The founder of Pinterest has personally written to the company's first 7,000 users.

The founders of AirBnB got their initial funding by selling their own brand of cereal. Their flagship products were Cap'n McCain and Obama O's.

Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce , has been doing some hell of a joke in recent years. He hired bogus protesters to disrupt their biggest rival's conference and asked all taxis at the event to give a 45-minute presentation on Salesforce.

Uber had a crazy offer called UberKITTENS. It gave residents of seven US cities the opportunity to purchase cuddle time with real kittens in 15-minute slots. Proceeds were donated to animal shelters.

Luxottica is a giant in the eyewear market. It controls 80% of major eyewear brands, including Oakley, Rayban and many more.

Ikea is building an 11 hectare city in east London.

Disney has huge stakes in the content business. Its brands include Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The History Channel, A&E, ESPN, and Youtube stars like PewDiePie.

Walmart employs 2.3 million people worldwide, more than the population of New Mexico.

The mysterious creator of Bitcoin , Satoshi Nakamoto, owns around 1 million bitcoin, which is roughly $ 7 billion.

You have the right to a weapon to defend yourself from an apocalypse which would you take ?

Former civil servant at the Ministry of Justice ( 1975 - 2010 ) March 16

Faced with the apocalypse (of Saint John or others) I do not think that a throwing weapon, white, with fire will change anything for me, as well as for humanity. Knowing myself seeing the atomic mushrooms rising in the distance, I stretch out in my deckchair, in a bikini, the raybans in my eyes and my best (and last) glass of whiskey to sip I await the last judgment.

What does it mean to think of people as "things" ?

Henri theureau

· To follow

Former English teacher at Education Nationale ( 1965 - 2002 ) June 10, 2019

If you think of people as you think of things, they are no longer human to you. You can buy things, sell them, cut them in half, plan them, throw them away, etc. People have sensations, feelings, they suffer or rejoice, they have rights and duties. If you think of people as things, they no longer have rights, only the duties that you can (perhaps) impose on them. You dehumanize them.

This is what slave traders and planters did from the 16th to the 19th century with African slaves. This is what the Nazis did in the labor camps and the extermination camps. This is what the gun dealers do in Yemen and elsewhere. This is also what the televised dream and chemical sleep merchants do, in their gentler way : they see us as purses on legs and consumers whose desires they even plan and reshape, with great blows of ubiquitous daily glamor pub !

Take a teenager with Nike sneakers (you know the logo), a Chevignon jacket (it's written on the back), a Converse bag, and RayBan sunglasses (like Sarkozy - but he 'll wait a while before he can afford one. Rolex), he carries the name of the THINGS he is becoming, all freedom to choose abdicated in advance.
