Snapchat unveils cartoonish machine to sell video glasses

Starting today, you can post Snaps with your face.

The machine itself has a screen, three big buttons to push (one for each color of glasses) and a place to swipe your credit card.

That's about all we know so far.

About those unorthodox vending machines, the company is calling them Snapbots, and they will travel across the United States to allow people to pay $130 for these glasses.

It seems Snapchat has just one vending machine at the moment that will journey across the U.S., one spot at a time. Here's hoping they show up in New York City soon.

Remember Snapchat's surprise move into hardware?

Each visit will last about a day. Actor Andy Milonakis was apparently able to get a pair, dropping into line and allegedly buying Spectacles from someone in line for $500. From the futuristic vending machine, which the company has already restocked with extra inventory, to the packaging of the glasses, the experience of buying Spectacles is clearly meant to be fun and different. They feature huge yellow shells along with a large round display which plays footage taken through Spectacles whenever the motion sensors that are integrated into the machine detect a person nearby.

The company wasn't immediately available to comment on whether it would release more than one machine at a time, or whether the machines would pop up in locations outside of Orange County.

Snapchat is tweeting photos of people visiting the first Snapbot in Santa Monica.
