It may not be the goggles for our kabayan in the Philippines but Oakley’s Airwave Goggle will certainly be the goggles for those who loves to skiing and still want to be connected all the time.
The Oakley Airwave is an eye wear with a heads-up display device that will give the wearer information like the skier’s speed, altitude, height of a jump made, G-force that was produce when creating that jump or move, streams your music from your android smartphone or idevices, receive SMS (you can reply via pre-typed response), receive phone call notification, a built-in GPS and tracker to track your friends or people. The Airwave’s heads-up display technology was co-developed with Recon instruments.
The Oakley Airwave also has an Android and iOS apps plus Oakley release an SDK to see who developers can cook up using Airwave’s platform. The price tag for Oakley’s Airwave is $600 USD, that’s roughly Php25k, you can purchased it from Apple Store or Oakley’s Online Store.
If you’d watched the video above the Oakley Airwave goggles it’s an eye wear bordering Google Glass project and Iron-man’s helmet and probably in the future every eye wear will have this kind of technology with it’s own voice activated assistant more like Jarvis.
