If you're hitting the slopes this season and don't want to scrimp on the tech, you might as well go full monty with Snow2 HUD ski goggles, a head up display system that's like Google Glass for skiers and snowboarders. While zipping downhill, a 14-inch image is projected five feet in front of wearers, in an unobtrusive corner of their field of vision. A host of sensors track speed, airtime, altitude changes, heart rate, outside temperature and more -- all viewable on the goggles' interface.
Controlled by a wrist-mounted, glove-friendly Bluetooth remote, users can link the goggles to their smartphone to take incoming calls, receive texts, plot routes on a map, all while keeping their eyes on the slopes. Best of all, the system's modular design enables it to be integrated with many of the world's leading goggle brands. There's a range of options to choose from, all in the ballpark of $349 to $449.
