Meet the Man Behind Spectacles, Snapchat’s New Smart Sunglasses

Snapchat finally pulled back the curtain on its new camera sunglasses last Friday night, its first hardware project, in the works since at least early 2015.

Now we also know who built them: Steve Horowitz, the former engineering SVP at Motorola and mobile product veteran who joined Snapchat back in early 2015 in a similar engineering VP role.

Horowitz is the guy in charge of Snapchat’s hardware efforts, sources say, which includes these glasses and any other future projects. He reports directly to CEO Evan Spiegel, and has been hiring other wearable experts throughout the year in an effort to grow the team.
