Snapchat glasses land at Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Snapchat's "Spectacles" were available for sale at Lincoln Park Zoo Wednesday morning.

A Snapbot vending machine was set up near one of the exhibits, where people lined up to buy a pair for around $130. They sold out around noon.

The glasses take shareable 10-second 360-degree videos through tapping a button on the frames.

Snapchat announces Snapbot vending machine locations on its website 24 hours before they appear.

The last time the vending machines were in town - at Dave & Busters in suburban Orland Park - the shades were snapped up in just a few hours.
