Ray-Ban Stories Smart Glasses: Bring Your Point Of View to Social Media

Ray-Ban and Facebook have announced the launch of their new collaboration: Ray-Ban Stories. These smart glasses offer the wearer the ability to record the world from their point of view in photos and videos and share it with friends and family through social media. Wearers can also make phone calls and listen to music.

Let’s take a deeper dive, and see everything Ray-Ban Stories has to offer.

Style and Design

Ray-Ban Stories glasses are designed to bring you multimedia and social media experiences in a compact wearable package.

They’re offered in 20 different styles, including some signature Ray-Ban frames, and available in 5 different colors, with a range of lenses including transition, sun, clear and prescription.

Within these frames, Ray-Ban and Facebook have built in:

  • a set of micro-speakers for phone calls
  • 3 mini-microphones that can be used for calls and audio recording for videos
  • two 5-megapixel cameras
  • an optimized Snapdragon processor
  • and more…

Ray-Ban designed these frames to be worn all day long, so they include a specially designed portable recharging case. At full charge, your Stories smart glasses can be used continuously for up to three days.

Videos, Photos, Phone Calls and Social Integrations

You can use the Stories’ two 5-megapixel cameras to take photos or up to 30 seconds of video either by pressing the capture button or by using Facebook Assistant voice commands. The 3-microphone array also allows for quality recorded sound in your videos and while speaking on the phone.

The glasses are integrated with Facebook View, an Android and iOS-compatible app, that allows you to share photos and videos directly with your friends and family online. You can import, edit and share all your content to Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Instagram, Snapchat, and more. Facebook View also allows you to add a number of exclusive Facebook enhancements to your content before posting.

Integration with your smartphone also allows you to save content and edit from there if you prefer.

For sound during phone calls, Stories employ background suppressing algorithms and Beamform technology.

All of this makes for an advanced, fashionable option for those in the market for smart glasses.

Q&A

What are Ray-Ban Stories’ privacy features?

All images and videos captured by the device are encrypted so that only you can see them. As an added feature, each pair of Ray-Ban Stories can only be linked to a single account at a time. This means that if your glasses are lost or stolen, and someone tries to link them to their own phone and account, the images and videos from your account are no longer accessible.

The integrated Facebook View app allows you to customize your personal preferences, including where and when content you record with your device is shared, and where your content is stored for editing and later viewing.

To help respect the privacy of others, the glasses feature a button to turn the microphones and cameras off, as well as a hardwired LCD light that indicates when the glasses are recording.

What information do Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses gather about me?

By default, Ray-Ban Stories glasses gather only very basic information.

This information includes the username and password linked to your Facebook account and wifi connectivity (to keep you linked to the Facebook View App), the device’s battery status and information on your linked email account.

The user is able to opt-in to sharing other information, such as the amount of time spent recording, in order to help in the further development of the glasses and the app. However, opting-in is not required to enjoy either Ray-Ban Stories or Facebook View.

3 Tips To Soothe Your Dry Eyes This Winter

It’s indoor heating season! And for many people, that also means dry eye season. People are more susceptible to DES in the winter because space heaters, fireplaces, and central heating systems all reduce moisture, leaving your eyes exposed to dry air.

Seasonal changes like reduced humidity and allergen-bearing breezes also contribute to dry eye syndrome.

Some common symptoms of dry eye syndrome are red, gritty, watery, irritated, and burning eyes. Those with DES may also experience blurred vision.

If you or a loved one are experiencing any symptoms of DES, contact Eyeworks in Ft. Worth, Southlake, or Downtown.

Here Are 3 Tips For Soothing Your Dry Eyes This Winter

  1. Stay Hydrated

Maintaining proper hydration is essential to producing sufficient tears. Your tears provide a continually moist, comfortable, and cleansed environment for your eyes.

So why not drink more hydrating fluids like water, milk, juice, tea, and coconut water to naturally support healthy tear production?

  1. Use a Humidifier

Make sure to combat the indoor dryness from heating systems with a cool-mist humidifier. Try to position the humidifier next to your office desk or night table, or wherever you spend the most time. And when you do use a heater, make sure the hot air flow isn’t blowing directly into or near your eyes.

  1. Wear Sunglasses

Sunglasses aren’t just for the summertime. Make sure to wear 100% UV blocking sunnies whenever outdoors to shield your eyes from harsh winds that can make your tears evaporate too quickly.

Bonus Tip: Visit Your Eye Doctor

Reading Glasses For Kids

Eye care for children is something that should start from an early age — even before they start school. A comprehensive eye exam is important, mainly to rule out any underlying eye conditions.

Who Needs Reading Glasses?

Reading glasses are for use in children to correct both refractive errors and to support the eyes as they are developing and coping with the demands of school. The most common refractive errors are myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Children may need glasses to support their eyes due to focusing difficulties or other binocular vision problems. Signs that a child may need glasses include:

  • Frequent squinting, eye strain, or eye rubbing
  • Complaints their eyes get tired or they are seeing double
  • Difficulties reading or learning
  • Dislikes doing school work
  • Attention or concentration problems

If you notice any of these behaviors, bring your child to an eye doctor for an eye exam.

Types of Eye Exams For Children

Typically, your child’s optometrist can start comprehensive eye exams before the child can even recognize letters, to check the child’s eye health or any obvious signs of eye disease. As the child reaches ages 2 or older, they will start to recognize pictures and symbols. This allows their vision to be examined in greater depth.

Before a child starts school it is important to have a comprehensive eye examination to check that the two eyes are working together to rule out lazy eye and eye turns as well as visual skills, including focusing, eye tracking, and binocular vision.

If your child has already been diagnosed with a vision problem or has a family history of vision or eye problems, comprehensive eye exams are even more essential.

If you are unsure if your child needs reading glasses contact us to schedule an appointment today!
