Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has recently announced the next product the company launches will be a pair of Ray-Ban "smart glasses". He didn't provide any specifics regarding a timeframe for release, he did state that the device will look just like regular glasses.
"The glasses have their iconic form factor, and they let you do some pretty neat things," the Facebook co-founder said. "So I'm excited to get those into people's hands and to continue to make progress on the journey toward full augmented reality glasses in the future."
