Billy Graham's final resting place place is in the Billy Graham Library's Prayer Garden, beside his wife, Ruth, who died in 2007. It is expected to last about 90 minutes, and also include prayers by pastors from as close as Charlotte and as far away as Asia.

It'll come with performance improvements and be available in new colours. While Snap was bullish on the potential of Spectacles when the product first arrived, consumer interest in the gadget cooled significantly over the next few months.

A Snap spokesperson declined to comment. At $130, they come in a variety of colors and house a single camera at the joint where the arm meets the front of the frames, which captures circular video for sharing clips on Snapchat. It could also add another camera so that 3D effects are possible. Snapchat has sold over 150,000 Spectacles in its first year, 50% more than the company figured it would sell over that time period. The company is reportedly also interested in licensing its cameras to traditional glasses companies, including Luxottica Group. They seemed popular at first, but then, something happened.

Since we don't have any official information regarding the new versions of spectacles, we are unable to describe anything on its launch date or pricing.
