No, the hardware needed for this eye tracking would be so minimal that it would not obstruct or impede your vision. Also the look of the goggles would not be compromised either. This could also be a device for tagging your videos while your on the slopes, so that you don't have to sift through hours of footage to find what you like. You could use an eye gesture to "tag" a certain portion of the footage if say you're about to go down a run that you know you'll want to watch later.

I'm starting to think this is a snowboarding invention forum.... but you need a low IQ to submit ideas.
It would discern the difference between any natural eye gesture. The eye gestures would be distinguishable.

No. I just use a Contour instead. It has a switch on it. You push it and it starts recording, and beeps to confirm. Amazing thing this switch invention.

Why anyone would need goggles, a smartphone, etc. to control a POV camera is beyond me.

Imagine a pair of oakley goggles that has 2 eye trackers imbedded (super small so they wouldnt be noticable) that would allow you to control your gopro camera hands free with simple eye gestures ie wink or blink...do you think you would use this instead of the remote or phone as a remote? This would be a way to not only spare battery but also prevent from capturing extraneous footage. What sort of objections would you have?

For all the talk about fps, most video editing programs (like iMovie) don't even take advantage of the extra frames unless you know how to conform the files in advance. I personally stopped doing slow-mos in my edits, as I feel if it's not 1000fps Cineflex it looks cheesy. My 10 cents...
Naw son. 60fps and then ramp the slow mo's. Thats the shit/

KansasNoob I can imagine the wifi especially with streaming drains a lot. Last time I went I used the wifi to aim, and as a remote shutter to take a couple group pictures.

We took my buddy's hero 2 when we went to Zapata Falls, the temp inside the cave was close to -20 and the camera quit working. Just something to think about...

jojotherider this guy got almost 13hrs on just wifi standby. Hopefully that would be enough.

You miiight be able to extend the time if you turn the LEDs off. I doubt it would amount to much savings though.

I wonder if there's a difference in battery life when using the remote vs the smartphone app. The smartphone app gets the preview which I imagine would take extra battery life. I wonder if that's still sent if you're connected via the remote.
