They are glasses with cameras, speakers, touch controls and a microphones.
On the good side of things it makes these glasses a great way to listing to something like a Podcast while out walking around or driving in your car.
Taking calls with the Story was easy, as I could answer with a tap of my finger on the touch sensor on the right arm.
The voice control commands work well.
My guess is so that it better works with things like Instagram.
They look really nice on, I love the shape and the color.
