Ray-Ban Stories

Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses, formerly known as Ray-Ban Stories, are smartglasses created as a collaboration between Meta Platforms and EssilorLuxottica. The product includes two cameras, open-ear speakers, a microphone, and touchpad, all built into the frame.[1] The glasses, announced in August 2020 and released on September 9, 2021, had a controversial reception stemming from mistrust over Facebook’s privacy controls.[2] The small size of the recording indicator light has also led to controversy post-release.[3] Ray-Ban Stories are the latest in a line of smartglasses released by major companies including Snap Inc and Google and are designed as one component of Facebook’s plans for a metaverse.[4] Unlike smart glasses previously created by other companies, the Ray-Ban Stories do not include any HUD or AR head-mounted display. On September 27, 2023, Meta removed the "Stories" name and announced the second generation of Meta Ray-Ban Smartglasses, which featured a Qualcomm Snapdragon AR1 Gen1 processor, upgrade of the cameras to 12 MP, improved audio, livestreaming to Facebook and Instagram, and Meta AI.[5]
