Has any body used these goggles before?

I was on a quest for some new goggles and came across something a little different.

Money is not the issue, the issue is does it work?
Let me clear up the lose ends of my question;
does it give an accurate enough long/lat reading to navigate back country with?
does it really give accurate real time speed and vert?
does this thing get reception in the mountains and trees????????
Check these things out.

If they work, then these things are genius and I want a pair and will pay the price (cheep if you think about what you are really getting)

those goggles are so sick, the idea behind them is awesome. I wish i knew someone with them so i could try them out or get a real review. at CES zeal launched a new version of those goggles that run android 2.2. Yes that means live twitter/facebook feeds on the mountain. ridiculous.

A friend of mine bought them, but i havent had a chance to try them on. I might in the next couple of days. He says that the HUD thing is pretty tiny and you need to focus on it.

That means that you could watch youtube videos on the lift! Or you could watch them going down the mountain.

Ya I got to check em out at a shop called Condor in Whistler... the photochromatic lens idea is sick, but i think these would be much cooler is they were true Heads up display style... like this...

But on the inside of a goggle lens... haha

I have enough problems trying to read the snow in flat light without a HUD or other bells/whistles/blinky lights distracting me.

The idea is cool, but sensitive electronics + a sport where I reguarly wipe out in a spectacular fashion = expensive to me.
