Oakley Airwave Goggles with HUD and GPS
Californian sports brand Oakley has created a pair of snowsports goggles with built-in heads-up display (HUD), GPS navigation system and Bluetooth, called Airwave. This added technology allows the user to monitor their own sporting statistics, as well as synch the goggles with other devices.
In-built accelerometer, barometer and gyro sensors give jump analysis in real time, while the GPS system allows for mapping and buddy tracking. The statistics appear on an advanced display system that uses smart optics and prism technology, so the user feels as if they are looking at a 14-inch screen from a distance of 5 ft. The display is placed unobtrusively at the bottom right of the goggles to ensure concentration is not impaired.
Compatible with both iOS and android operating systems, the goggles use Bluetooth to access incoming phone calls and texts, as well as acting as an interface for devices such as smartphones, heart-rate monitors or music players.
