World's first camera-cum-ski goggle developed
With the ski season now firmly upon us, gadget-crazed powder lovers should be thankful that the world’s first snow goggle with an integrated digital camera is en-route to the slopes.
Liquid Image's snow goggle: capture snowy memories with pictures and video
The Summit Series 335 Snow Camera Goggle features a 5Mp lens inside, which manufacturer Liquid Image promised can capture both wide-angle stills and 720 x 480p video at 30fps as you carve a line through the snow.
Camera controls are integrated into the snow goggle itself and can be operated while still wearing your gloves, Liquid Image promised. One button controls the power and lens modes, while the other button operates the shutter.
LEDs inside the goggle show the user that everything is working as it should and battery life is said to extend to 2200 still images or to over two hours of off-piste video capture.
Though the goggle itself only has a 16MB Flash capacity, storage space can be expanded by slipping a Micro SD into the on-board memory card slot. The goggle even has a USB port – should you fancy moving images onto your PC without getting your eyes cold.
Liquid Image’s Summit Series 335 Snow Camera Goggle will be available later this year, priced at roughly $150 (£93/€103). ®
Why would you want to ruin your ski/snowboarding holiday with calls?
shame about the googles looking a bit pants
But I'd get a pair for the summer holidays too !
would be great if I could take calls through blutooth with it
good stuff though, looking forward snowboarders filming themselves dragging the snow down the piste,or sitting in the middle of it, while the rest of the world moves around them :D
I've just bought an action cam and a new pair of goggles!
later this year??!
Sub 100? Thats not a bad price, for what sounds like an ok spec camera and goggles combo!
but...... later this year, thats no good for when the snow Clears and the slopes close in a couple of months! i need them now!
