Snapchat Spectacles Expected to Make Texas Stop Soon

The sunglasses capture video clips that upload wirelessly to image-messaging app.


Snapchat fans in North Texas are waiting to find out if they’ll be next to get a chance to buy Snapchat Spectacles.

The hip sunglasses, which capture 10-second video clips that can be shared on the Snapchat app, are sold out of vending machines, called Snapbots. 

Texas records show a Snap LLC registered in late September and obtained a sales tax permit too, according to the Los Angeles Times

They recently made an appearance in Catoosa, just outside Tulsa, but may be heading south to North Texas soon, the Dallas Morning News reported. This is the third location for the Snapbot machines nationwide. They sell for $130.

Tech Crunch calls Snap’s rollout plan “pretty amazing … it’s generating huge hype by keeping the locations a secret and only offering them at one spot per day.”

Each Snapbot machine has a limited supply of about 200 Spectacles and they sell out fast. Snap will announce the next Snapbot location on its website and Twitter
