After popping up in California and then Oklahoma of all places, it looks like Snapchat Spectacles are continuing their journey across the country as a kiosk has been spotted on 5 East 59th Street in New York City for the highly popular specs. The kiosk will be there through New Year’s Eve, though it’ll be closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.
Similarly to how it operated in California, there’s a lengthy wait to use the single vending machine that hands out these $130 spectacles. No doubt Snapchat is relying on the buzz of artificial scarcity to promote its camera spectacles but that doesn’t seem to stop New Yorkers who were in line from 7AM this morning in order to grab a pair of the coveted glasses.
