Oakley Airwave Goggle
 
Just came across these...



I believe I read they go on sale tomorrow, and I believe it said they will retail for $600.

I think a lot of the features are pretty cool, but was thinking about the possibility of the "buddy tracker" feature being used, obviously in conjunction with a beacon, to aid in backcountry rescue...

Thoughts?

let me know when they can just put it in my eyeball

i think it is very interesting. i wouldn't get being i just ride resorts and it is not needed. But for some one who is riding back country a lot, it is a very useful tool.

How does the buddy tracker system work? I would guess everyone would need to have phone reception and have the same app running on their phones? So expensive too

if you ride heli's where there is cell phone reception you're a giant vagina.
