Fans of Snapchat Spectacles will want to grab a pair of ACE Eyewear

These sunnies can share everywhere

It’s fair to say that Snapchat’s Spectacles didn’t exactly take the world by storm. The social media-friendly sunnies were quirky fun, but alas, a society where people can share every waking moment of their lives to their profiles without having to reach for a smartphone is yet to materialise. At least, that’s we thought. Unperturbed by Spectacle-gate, Acton – best known for its electric skateboards – is having another crack at futuristic shades. With ACE Eyewear, you can livestream, shoot 8MP photos and up to 40 minutes of HD footage with the 120 degree wide-angle lens, which can then be shared on the fly to Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Multi-platform wobbly festival videos – that’s more like it. Pre-orders ($99) are limited to the US at the moment, but if the glasses are a hit we could see them cross the pond soon.

I'm fascinated by all things tech, but if you were going to leave me on a desert island, I'd probably ask for my Nintendo Switch, a drone, and a pair of noise-cancelling cans to block out the relentless seagull racket. When I'm not on Stuff duty you'll probably find me subscribing to too many podcasts, playing too many video games, or telling anyone who will listen that Spurs are going to win a trophy this season.
