A few weeks ago, while I was in our workshop, I had an idea: If I could modify Snapchat’s Spectacles into a pair of safety goggles, I could document our projects without ever picking up a camera.
The purpose for these hybrid safety specs is threefold: I can post images of our projects or build steps to my Snapchat account, save the videos for internal documentation, and also create more structured build logs.
I’ve been using them for the past week; they're super fun. Here’s how you can modify your own pair:
You can now use the supplied O-ring to attach the shields to the Snapchat Spectacles. They should now look like this:
The Snapchat app makes it really easy to edit 10-second Snaps into a build story. I even made this display rack to show them off:
Check out this video (recorded using the Spectacles!) that shows how I made the display rack:
