Snapchat’s camera-equipped Spectacles were released at the company’s New York City location last month, with some pairs immediately reselling for up to $4,500.

Never ones to sleep on hype, we hit up the much-talked about premises on a rainy winter’s day to cop a set of shades and get an understanding of just why they’re so sought after. Those queuing had come from far and wide; clearly undeterred by the inclement weather.

Rather than human interaction, the super-futuristic store instead features a lone bot vending machine which dispenses the specs, with TVs on the wall playing a demo loop of their video capability.
