A HUD in your ski goggles? Only in Sci-Fi for now

It’s not that I don’t think this is a good idea. It’s just that I am absolutely certain that these won’t be as cool as you want them to be. Think about it. If it’s projected on or inside the goggles, it’s covering up the slope — and at any rate you’d get a headache switching focus between it and the real world. If it’s projected onto your eye, that’s freaking science fiction; if these guys had eye projection technology that works as advertised, they’d be contracting with the Pentagon, not making extreme sports accessories.

Goggle7HotBrandSo it’s also got to have a GPS unit, camera, accelerometer, controls, plus CPU, RAM and storage — and these goggles are supposed to weigh a quarter of a pound? Right! Did you ask if they have any bridges for sale?

Seriously, I’d like to rock these as much as anyone else, but chances are it’s going to be some shiesty low-rez display and it’ll only work under very specific circumstances. I appreciate their dedication, but it’s not going to happen. That said, if they prove me wrong I’ll buy a pair like that.
