Example of the kind of information information via the head mounted display inside the goggles
Zeal/Recon have unveiled the world's first goggles with GPS and head mounted display
The Transcend goggles are available in two lens formats - SPPX polarized and photochromic lens that auto adjusts to changing light conditions and SPX polarized lens that is said to reduce glare by 99 per cent, comes with built-in anti-fog technology and benefits from a wide vision frame
The image on the tiny LCD inside the goggles is made to appear as though it hangs about six feet in front of the user
A coming together of sports lens developer Zeal Optics and display innovator Recon Instruments has managed to successfully squeeze both GPS technology and head-mounted display into a set of ski goggles named Transcend. A tiny computer gathers information from a number of onboard sensors and provides location, speed, altitude and temperature information to the wearer via a micro-LCD display inside the goggles. The image from the display is then virtually projected so that it appears out in front of the user.
