Snapchat has been secretly hard at work on what has been described as a competitor to Google Glass. A source has tipped Business Insider off, however, that Snapchat's supposedly top-secret project may have been hiding in plain sight.
In August, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel was pictured wearing a very different pair of sunglasses from his usual ones while on vacation in Corsica with his girlfriend, the model Miranda Kerr.
The paparazzi photos taken of Spiegel show him looking straight at a camera with a very circular pair of frames and what appears to be cameras on either side of them.
Compared with Spiegel's normal aviator style, the sunglasses photographed in August appear to have thicker frames and the attached cameras. They're similar to but aren't exactly clones of the glasses made by Vergence Labs, a company Snapchat acquired in 2014.
