Let’s be up front about this: everything in this item is based entirely on rumor, although it’s sourced on someone cruising industry want ads and noticing an anomaly.
What popped for the perspicacious browser was that Snapchat, the wildly popular photo sharing app, is looking for hardware experts to develop Snapglass. This after the company’s 2014 purchase of Vergence Labs, which made goggles that records what a wearer sees. So the company based on ephemeral data is now moving into the somewhat more permanent wearable hardware market.
And taking on Google Glass. Maybe HoloChat. Or rumor has it, anyway. Let’s hope the company’s VR lasts longer than 10 seconds.
For some reason, we keep thinking of something Douglas Adams said: “Technology is a word that describes something that doesn’t work yet.”
