Recon Instruments: Display in Ski Goggles for Skiers, Snowboarders – CES 2012
A heads up display in your goggles for skiers? That is what Recon Instruments is working on.
These goggles won a CES innovation award. It’s a pair of goggles, but it tells you a lot more.
“This is our Mod Live.” Mark says. “It’s an Android based unit. It provides skiiers, snowboarders, snowmobiles, anyone with real time data – speed, vertical decent, distance traveled, altitude.”
Mod Live also ships with a variety of apps, including buddy tracker, navigation, points of interest. It has caller ID, and playlist to know what you are hearing. The GPS data keeps you informed. There is even a vitals monitor for you to check your heart rate of that last jump.
They don’t make the goggles – they make the technology. They have some manufacturers, and are soon partnering with others.
The are two versions: Android based for $399 and Non-Android version is $299.
