If you’re a fan of skiing and video games, and wish that you could combine the two, you’re in luck. The folks over at Recon Instruments have decided to combine real-life skiing with video games with its brand new MOD and MOD LIVE ski goggles that displays you your realtime stats in front of your very eyes as you challenge the snowy slopes.
Want to know how fast you’re going? Want to know how much air time you had for that last jump? Want to know whether you improved one your last run? The Recon MOD will tell you all that. If you need a map to show you where you’re going, or just to lead you out of somewhere in the event you get lost, these MOD goggles will do just that.
And if you’re one to stay social while out skiing (provided your carrier has coverage for you and your phone can withstand the temperatures), Recon’s MOD LIVE ski goggles can connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth. This means you can answer/reject calls in the middle of a jump, listen to music, and you can reply texts with preset messages. It even comes with wireless compatibility with select wearable sports video cameras that you can use to record ski runs with.
Both MOD goggles are controllable via a remote that’s attachable via wristband or head strap. At the end of the day, when you’re done skiing, you can upload all the data collected MOD onto your computer for a more in-depth review of your performance, and to even chart out on a map where you’ve been.
For people who love skiing and want to know every single detail of what they’ve done out on the snow, you can’t go wrong with Recon’s MOD and MOD LIVE goggles. They’re both available now with an MSRP of $299 and $399 respectively, from leading sporting goods retailers and online stores.
