You’ll probably see Yusuf wearing sunglasses indoors. But look more carefully and you’ll realize that his sunglasses are actually Snapchat Spectacles! Yusuf has been wearing cameras and computers on his body everyday for over a decade. The sunnies he’s currently wearing also have screens inside, augmenting the internet onto the world around him. By 2030, he thinks we will all be doing the same. And that’s why is building the world’s most immersive storytelling company.
