Meta and EssilorLuxottica have teamed up to create Ray-Ban Stories, a range of smartglasses sporting some of Ray-Ban’s most iconic designs. Unlike the ill-fated Google Glass, Ray-Ban Stories look less like something out of a sci-fi movie and more like something you’d actually want to wear.

Housing dual inte-grated 5MP cameras, speakers, microphones, a notification LED light, and an image-capture button, these are not your grandad’s sunglasses.

Able to capture up to 60s of video, play audio, accept calls, and offer voice controls via Facebook Assistant, these smartglasses will let you live out your hi-tech James Bond fantasies without needing Q.

Compatible with Android and iOS, Ray-Ban Stories require the Facebook View app to function. While they are not water or splash resistant, they can be fitted with transition and prescription lenses.
