Get a pair of Snapchat Spectacles at the London Design Museum this week

Rosie Percy

Social media obsessives and oversharers, rejoice! Snapchat Spectacles have arrived in the UK.

Offering an alternative to puppy-dog filtered faces, the sunglasses allow Snapchat users to capture 30-second videos from their line of vision whenever and wherever they wear them.

The specs were previously only available in the US, but last week they landed in London with a Snapbot vending machine appearing underneath the London Eye on Friday.

The big yellow arrival was one of several across cities including Paris, Berlin and Barcelona to mark the launch of Snapchat Spectacles in Europe

The bots usually move every day to keep selfie-takers on their toes, but for one week only the bright box will be stationed inside the Design Museum. It appeared there this morning, and will be on site until the end of this week. 

So head down to Kensington High Street to get your hands on a pair of the specs in teal, black or coral for £129.99. 

The Spectacles Snapbot vending machine will be in the atrium of the Design Museum, 224-238 Kensington High St, W8 6AG, from Jun 5-11.
