Default Oakley Airwave.... Sweet baby Jesus

So Oakley are coming out with a new goggle for 2013. Looks good, similar big lens style to APX's and the EG2's, but here's the kicker, it's got a heads up display in the goggle... Can display information such as

"With Airwave, alpine sports enthusiasts can access a full range of information transmitted directly to the eye. Snowboarders and skiers can view jump analytics, pinpoint their location on a resort map alongside navigational information, and even locate and track others in their group. Additional sensor information includes distance traveled, altitude, speed and vertical descent data. Pairing with a smartphone allows immediate viewing of incoming calls and text messages, and music playlists on a Bluetooth-enabled device can be easily accessed and controlled by the glove-friendly wireless remote that can be strapped to the user’s body or goggle depending on their preference."

Will be keen to try these out, sadly looking at a price of $599 on the Oakley site Whole new level of Master Chief shit right here!
