Facebook smart glasses – level 2

15-09-2021 15:00

On Thursday, Facebook introduced its first smart glasses, and it became the latest company which tried to make smart glasses mainstream.

Wearers will be able to take photos and make short videos and then easily post them on social media. They can also make calls and listen to music and podcasts with the glasses. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook´s founder and CEO, said that phones were not the most important device anymore and that smart glasses wearers could interact with the device and with people around them at the same time.

In 2013, the company Google introduced its Google glass, but people did not like how it looked. That is why Facebook worked together with the company Ray-Ban. Ray-Ban is a leader in eye wear, and people love its style. Facebook hopes that people will love its smart glasses and that it will change the way how they see the world.

Difficult words: mainstream (something that many people think is normal), interact (to communicate with or react to each other), eye wear (things which people wear on the eyes).
