Snapchat Spectacles is the tech company's first product. The funky pair of coloured sunglasses contains a small camera that takes short bursts of videos.

The product was launched in the US back in November and the shades have been available to buy online since February but Friday saw the launch of the Spectacles all over Europe.

Similar to the launch in the US, the company planted Snapbot vending machines selling Spectacles in secret locations, in London, Paris, Berlin, Barcelona and Venice to begin with, in order to generate some hype.

Sadly, the Snapbot has not made its way to Ireland just yet but the glasses go on sale online Friday in Ireland as well as 13 other European countries at a retail price of €149.99.

The company's move into hardware when it has had such huge success with the Snapchat messaging app was a major surprise and it has since billed itself as a camera company.
