Snowboarding and software development

Gravity Jack In the Press

When I put away my wakeboard for the winter here in the Northwest I break out the snowboard. Naturally I follow the latest tech for the mountain…. Can you imagine what you could do with these goggles if they opened up an API and SDK for them? I would totally wear these to starbucks if they come in black. 🙂 Skiing and snowboarding is just one application – eventually augmented reality apps are going to require overlay like this that you wear all the time. I wonder why the guys at recon aren’t riding the AR wave to get press for these?

For boarders and skiers Recon Instruments, is in the midst of designing ski/snowboard goggles which will feature a 15mm diagonal micro display inside of the lens to provide you with all that you want to know about your performance including, real-time speed, jump hang-time, vertical gain/loss, altitude, temperature, and will even include a stopwatch and GPS capability to guide you on the slopes.
And if that is not enough, the Recon guys are even trying to enable the goggle’s lens to show you your friend’s location on the slopes. Resort trail maps projected on the inside of your goggles for easy navigation are on the cards too. The Alpine goggles are slated for release in fall of 2010, and will be available in two styles with the difference between the two being in the quality of the lens and resolution of the picture.

I first saw this on: http://www.bornrich.org/entry/futuristic-ski-goggles-with-head-mounted-display-and-gps-capability-to-debut-in-2010/
So cool!
