But the reality of it is that the goggles would be so huge and weigh so much that the inconvience of wearing them would probably turn people off from buying them, along with the price tag that would probably be attached to them. Plus Goggles are one of those things that when you bite it go flying and get filled with snow which in turn would probably destroy whatever electronics inside the goggle.
i totally agree with what dan is saying.
