Capture the world in 3D and playback your memories straight through the glasses.

Snap Inc., the owner of popular multimedia messaging app Snapchat, has debuted its redesigned Spectacles glasses, called the Spectacles 3, which looks sleeker than its predecessor.

Spectacles 3 was designed with dual cameras to help users capture the world in 3D, a feature that the Spectacles 2 did not have. The new pair of sunglasses will retail for $380, both the black and rose gold variants — which Snap calls carbon and mineral — and will be available in November.

The company said Spectacles 3 was built with a strong, lightweight steel frame and circular lenses. As with the Spectacles 2, Spectacles 3’s cameras are also situated on either side of the frames.

The Spectacles 3 is built with augmented reality support to let users enhance their “snaps.” The glasses also come with a 3D Viewer to allows users to immerse themselves in their own memories, just like the Black Mirror episode entitled “The Entire History of You,” where users with memory implants can play back all the moments that their eyes have captured. The difference with Snap’s Spectacles 3 is that you no longer need to get implants. You can take off the glasses anytime and watch all your memories as you replay them straight through the glasses.

The memory playback feature is also present in the Spectacles 2, which are still available for sale from $149.99 to $199.99. Wearers of the Spectacles 2 can press the eyewear’s button to take a 10-second video from their perspective and press them again to keep recording for up to 30 seconds.

Both Spectacles lines feature a sync and share option that lets users sync their glasses wirelessly with Snapchat.

The water-resistant Spectacles 2 are still available on Amazon.com:

- Spectacles 2 Original Onyx Moonlight for $149.99

- Spectacles 2 Nico for $199.99

- Spectacles 2 Original Ruby Daybreak for $149.99

- Spectacles 2 Original Sapphire Twilight for $149.99

- Spectacles 2 Veronica for $199.99
