The next big thing could be Snapchat glasses. The social media company's recent hires suggest as much.

Social media company Snapchat could be close to revealing its first smart wearable device. The company could be working on smart glasses. Snapchat enjoyed incredible growth and has now about 100 million daily users. The service is especially popular amongst younger users.

There might soon be a hardware device coming from Snapchat that could make the capturing of photos and videos more instant and convenient. CNET reports that Snapchat's recent hires include experts in augmented and virtual reality.

Back in 2014, Snapchat acquired Vergence Labs, which made glasses equipped with cameras. The Google Glass disaster is likely a factor of smart glasses having a very hard time to come to market.

No company wants to make the same mistakes as Google. The solution to privacy is unclear though. A camera remains a camera. I don't think you can explain to someone you are filming that the video is only going to be on Snapchat and it will delete itself - but not before an undefined number of people around the world saw it.

There are no leaks about the Snapchat wearable. The existence is implied through the key hires for the Snapchat lab research team.
