They’ll hit the market in the fall.

Snapchat will soon begin selling sunglasses with a built-in camera capable of recording video, the Wall Street Journal reports.

They’ll be called Spectacles and will allow wearers to share videos using the popular Snapchat app.

Available in teal, coral or black, the glasses will carry a price tag of $130. The Journal reports that they’ll hit the market “in limited quantities.”

The sunglasses, which are one-size-fits-all, have a button located close to the hinge. Users press it to begin recording through the camera’s 115-degree-angle lens.

The videos can last up to 10 seconds.

A light on the glasses lets people nearby know that a Spectacles wearer is recording.

As it announced the product, the company also said it had changed its corporate name to Snap Inc.
