Oakley’s Lightwave, Smart Ski Googles

Source: TechCrunch, Nov 2012

The Airwave is a $600 snow goggle that’s for sale in Apple stores and through Oakley for skiing and snowboarding that contains a small display integrated with GPS, Bluetooth, and onboard sensors all powered by technology built by a company called Recon Instruments. This lets users see how fast they’re going, where their friends are on the mountain, listen and control music, see text messages, all while on the slopes — the user can download a corresponding Airwave app for Android or iOS and control their phone and other media through the Airwave’s wrist controller. Oakley has also released an SDK to let independent developers make apps that integrate with the Airwave.
