The first vending machine was spotted on Thursday, in Venice Beach. The next vending machine appeared in Loma Vista, California. For those hunting for the latest machine, Snapchat has set up a map on their website, which shows the location of every vending machine as they appear. They decided to setup the latest vending machine near Big Sur, in a small town. It is believed that the town is accessible by traveling the Pfeiffer Big Sur, an expansive state park.
If you are one of the people that feel they “have” to have the latest gadget goggles, it is important that you move as quickly as possible. A great example of what you are up against is the revealing of their first vending machine. It was announced on Thursday that the Snapchat spectacles had their own vending machine. By Thursday afternoon, there were people waiting in line, and they had to be informed by the representatives of Snap that they were all sold out. Knowing the limited amount, people took the spectacles and went on after-market sites, like eBay to sell theirs. The retail price for the glasses are $130. There was a seller on eBay that had his glasses selling for $900.
