Ray-Ban Stories

Ray-Ban’s foray into smart glasses is looking sharp!

The luxury brand has teamed up with Facebook to launch Ray-Ban Stories — smart glasses that capture photos and videos, listen to music, take phone calls, and even share your adventures directly onto social media platforms!

Make and view content through your glasses

Ray-Ban Stories comes with a 5-megapixel camera, designed to capture steadily across all movements. It has several features seen on smartphones such as HDR, Low Light Fusion, Video Stabilization, and Denoising.

The smart glasses also pairs with the new Facebook View app, which is available on iOS and Android, making it easy to import, edit, and share content captured. Then, you can send it to various apps such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, and more.

For those who like to edit, you can save the content to your smartphone’s camera roll. Although, Facebook View has exclusive enhancements to make your content special.

Privacy is still a focus

Smart glasses can raise flags, both for users and the people around them. This is why Ray-Ban and Facebook integrated privacy into the product design.

For instance, there are hardware protections like a power switch to turn off the cameras and microphone. The smart glasses notify people nearby, too, through a shining white light when taking photos or videos. For those who like to be more in control of their privacy concerns, you can customize your experience through the Facebook View app.

Ray-Ban Stories

As per Facebook, Ray-Ban Stories collect only what’s needed to make your glasses work and function. Say, your battery status, your Facebook account for verification when using the Facebook View app, and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Price and availability

The Ray-Ban Stories starts at US$ 299 and is available in 20 variations like the iconic Ray-Ban styles such as Wayfarer, Round, and Meteor. Personalization is easy since it comes in five colors with a range of lenses — clear, sun, transition, and prescription.

It’s available for purchase online and in select retail stores in the US as well as Australia, Canada, Ireland, Italy, and the UK.

Leather lovers, lo and behold!

Mujjo’s lineup of leather iPhone cases has just got a refresh for the iPhone 13 series. Following Apple’s ethos in designing its products, Mujjo subtly refined, polished, and improved its cases.

The new smartphone cases got their bottom neatly covered while still keeping the charging port and speakers open. And it now has a raised bezel around the rear camera that keeps the iPhone’s protruding lenses protected against scratches and other abrasive surfaces.

Like its previous cases, the new lineup still carries Mujjo’s defining features. Its leather still rises 1mm above the edge of the glass, and it’s still made from high-quality, full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather.

Its insides are lined by a Japanese microfiber with a sophisticated satin-like finish, and essential buttons are fully covered. More importantly, it still comes with a wallet that stores up to three bank or identification cards.

Price and availability

Mujjo’s leather cases for the iPhone 13 come in three colors: Signature Tan, Monaco Blue, and Low-key Black. Cases retail starting from USD 45 ranging up to USD 55, and EUR 45 to EUR 55 for European customers. And it will be available for purchase on Mujjo’s website.

All cases are compatible with iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The Leather Case will come in Black, Indigo Blue, Leather Antique Cognac, and Olive. It retails for US$ 59.99. Meanwhile, the Moment Case comes in Black, Indigo Blue, Olive, and Yellow. It retails for US$ 49.99. Finally, the Clear Case sells for US$ 49.99.
