I think they're pretty cool, but not really necessary.

As cool/helpful as the features might be, I really don't believe they're worth that much money. I mean for people who have more money than sense, I can understand why you'd give it a go but really, $600 to spend on a pair of goggles! It's nothing short of silly. I got my Oakley Scalpels from this place that does sports eye wear like Oakley sunglasses as well as commercial kinda stuff like Ray Bans etc. Take a look on there, you might be able find something that will also suit your needs but not break the bank so much. Thank you and enjoy!

That shit is pretty rad and fuckin expensive but where are going with this sport? Are we supposed to be fuking robots in the FUTURE and this fuckin future tech is gonna decide for us what to do where to go
No brahh, when I go shred the mtn I wanna stay away as much as I can from the tech, I have enough at home and work glued to the computer and shit that's why I go to the mtn

Once we have hover-boards, we won't need snow.

I dont see anything new here in the tech that we dont already have, but it simply making it easier to reference. Everyone on the hill already texts, listens to music, and can download free apps to track speed, distance etc etc. All this does it make it easier to reference of which I am big fan of the tech. The buddy finder is great although not needed for most, but as far as im concerned the more tech in safety the better.

I say bring it on. Soon it will be cheaper for everyone.

The oakleys are sick but they are sorta over glorified. I got to check out some demo units in a shop near by, and it's like a small screen under your right eye and you have a little remote to toggle through screens. 6 bones just seems too pricey.

price aside and strictly speaking about it/s performance can you comment on the screen? Is it something that distracts? Is it gimmicky? Or do you think would actually be kinda cool and not annoying while boarding.

Yeah it's not distracting at all, price aside I'd buy em, I'm just not completely sold on them
