Snap Inc. is an American multinational technology and social media company, founded on September 16, 2011 by Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy and based in Venice, Los Angeles. Its products include Snapchat and Spectacles, as well as the Bitmoji app.

Spectacles are a pair of smart glasses developed and manufactured by Snap Inc., announced on September 23, 2016, during Snap Inc's rebrand from Snapchat Inc. and released on November 10, 2016.

They are made for Snap's image messaging and multimedia platform Snapchat and are distributed through Snap's pop-up vending machine, Snapbot. Since February 20, 2017, Snap Spectacles are available for purchase online.

One of the principal concepts of Snapchat is that pictures and messages are only available for a short time before they become inaccessible. The prototype for Snapchat was started by Brown and Spiegel as a project for one of Spiegel's classes at Stanford, where Spiegel was a product design major. Beginning as "Picaboo", the idea was to create a selfie app (application) which allowed users to share images that were explicitly short-lived and self-deleting. In late 2011, Snapchat was launched on the app store and has since had a meteoric rise. 

The temporary nature of the pictures encourages frivolity and emphasizes a more natural flow of interaction. Spectacles are a natural evolution of this original value proposition as they allow the user to capture the image or video that they want in a hands free, high resolution manner. All while keeping to the ephemeral nature of the product. 

The patent is titled 'Eyewear Having Selectively Exposable Feature". It was filed on the 15th of April, 2015.

In early March 2017, the company officially went public under the trading symbol SNAP, and raised almost $30 billion in market capitalization on the first day of trading.
