That's... interesting. Not sure how reliable the electronics are going to be though. I'm a pretty rough rider, and I sometimes get into some pretty rough collisions. Last thing I want happening are the electronics blowing in my face. It's a pretty cool concept, I wouldn't hate having that, but I'll wait 'til they release an ultracompact version. This one seems rather bulky.

well they havent even started making them yet..that was pretty much a concept drawing...i did a report on head mounted displays and thats what the goggles would be but ya they can get pretty small so im sure they would have less blucky stuff when they release them next fall...

I wouldn't adopt them so quickly though. I would definitely wait until all of the tech gets ironed out. Especially considering you can buy a very decent board for that price point.

Another thing that caught my attention, the lower part of frames is absurdly big. For skiers, this won't be a problem because they look straight forward. For us snowboarders, it is going to block a good amount of our lower peripherals because we have to turn our heads to one side to look forward. I'm sure they needed that extra space in the frames for the electronics.

But when those quirks get worked out, this will be one awesome tech. What's next? A mini HD screen to watch a movie in the middle of a run. Oh, how about a video chat? A first person view of what your buddy is riding? Oh the possibilities.

can you explain why it is important that you have that information in front of your eyes at all times? further, why does the benefit having that information in front of your eyes at all time, outweigh the cost of the associated distraction?

thanks

I cracked a lens last year and the goggles were only $150. I couldn't imagine cracking a lens on a $400 pair of goggles. Seems completely useless to me.

You make a convincing argument there.
