Snap, the parent company and developer of Snapchat has been pretty much known for only one product, and that is Snapchat which kind of what helped propelled them to fame in the first place. That and their rejection of buyout offers from the likes of Facebook. However in recent times the company has expanded their offerings.
One of those offerings is Spectacles which is basically a pair of augmented reality glasses that looks like a more fashionable version of Google Glass. Now according to a report from the New York Times, it seems that Snap has at one point or the other worked on a drone of their own. However the report is unclear if Snap is still working on the drone or if this was simply one of the company’s many projects and experiments.
The report says “worked” as in past tense, so it would seem to suggest that this is something the company has previously explored but aren’t doing so anymore. Unsurprisingly a Snap spokeswoman declined to comment when asked about it. We’re not sure how a drone would fit into Snap’s product lineup which seems to deal quite a bit with augmented reality, but perhaps it’s just the company’s way of branching out.
In any case take it with a grain of salt since it’s hard to say if this alleged drone will ever materialize, but what do you guys think? What kind of drone do you think Snap would have made, and how do you think it might have tied into their existing products/services?
