Summary

Facebook’s hardware efforts over the years have been, to put it bluntly, weak. Sure, the company’s enjoying the recent runaway success of its unchallenged Oculus Quest 2 VR headset (from a brand it acquired for billions), but there are still skeletons littered in its product past. Remember its mediocre Portal video calling device? Or how about that time it partnered with HTC for the disastrous Facebook Phone? Facebook, it would seem, keeps losing the plot with hardware and as its latest stab at consumer goods proves, the evidence just keeps piling up.

Meet the Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses, the most recent, and likely ill-fated hardware endeavor from Mark Zuckerberg’s misinformation empire. Yes, Facebook actually partnered with Ray-Ban to make a pair of tech-infused glasses with the goal of enabling the same camera-on-your-face habits as Google Glass without making you look like the world’s biggest dork. They cost $300, pair with a brand new smartphone app called Facebook View, and are available for purchase now.
