Zeal Optics have jumped on board to develop a set of ski goggles. They claim to be the first GPS enabled, and sensor laden ski goggles, which enable the goggles to compute speed, altitude, temperature and time details. The toggle switch on the side allows this data to be viewed in real time, though it may be preferrable to watch the huge slopes of snow which you are quickly approaching. Otherwise, it would almost be like trying to read a text message whilst driving on a spiralling road.
The goggles will retail at $350 and will be released in October. If you take your skiing seriously, or your snowboarding, then these will undoubtedly offer you everything you could possibly wish to know as you grace the snow.
