Meta launches the second generation of Ray-Ban Stories

Meta launches the second generation of Ray-Ban Stories

At Meta Connect, Mark Zuckerberg recently launched all the news that the tech giant has in store for us. In addition to various other things, the Quest 3 and the new generation of Ray-Ban Stories received a lot of attention.

With the first you turn your environment into a virtual world. The new Ray-Ban Stories have been improved in every way. A much better camera, better audio, a battery that lasts longer, a choice of more styles in more colors and, last but not least, a direct connection to Meta AI. The question is of course whether we should be happy with all those technical gadgets full of algorithms and information that you could otherwise find out yourself. For tech enthusiasts this is of course a blessing, for others like me it is a complete disaster. Soon your smartwatch or smartglasses will ensure that you never have to discover anything yourself again because the AI technology already fills in everything for you. Imagine you are going to Paris or New York for the first time.

Instead of going on an adventure and discovering the city yourself, your smart glasses will tell you, solicited or unsolicited, just about everything you can think of. Not only information about buildings or museums, for example, but also reviews of restaurants or shops. We are increasingly becoming herd animals who are more and more guided by what Mark Zuckerberg and associates think we should do. Mankind simply becomes the dumbest species ever, completely (dis)informed by what others have already thought up and invented. I'm not looking forward to it, but others might think it's fantastic. We will see. The first version of the Ray-Ban Stories was never for sale here and this second generation is currently only available in the United States.

Trend break at Gucci

Trend break at Gucci

Gucci has a new designer and took a completely new course with the show in Milan. Alessandro Michele's opulent spectacles had made way for a sober classic show in which the models mainly showed chic designs with many references to the brand's rich archives

The designs were beautiful and, according to the experts, very skillfully made, the decorations consisted mainly of glitter and the colors were always stylishly combined into a harmonious whole that never shocked or caused big oohs and aahs. Of course, we also pay particular attention to the glasses. Frames were not shown anyway and far fewer models than before wore sunglasses and always the same, chic model. In short, Gucci opts for a completely new style and a striking trend break that we will undoubtedly also see in the (sun)glasses collections.

The new sunglasses from Silhouette

The new sunglasses from Silhouette

For this new series of rimless sunglasses from the SUN Collection 2023, the designers of Silhouette were inspired by the beautiful beaches and idyllic villages in and around Barcelona in Spain.

If you know Calella, Cadaqués, Begur or Bogatell and have been there before, reading this story will undoubtedly make you want to pack your bags and go there to enjoy the beach, sea, sun, terraces and that wonderful Mediterranean atmosphere.

The, as always with these eyeglass makers, subtle designs with this time large oversized lenses in seventies style give every outfit a little extra glamour and at the same time protect the eyes against harmful sun rays and intrusive paparazzi.
