Winter Olympics showcase futuristic goggles

Competitors in Vancouver‘s Winter Olympics have been displaying state of the art goggles which show speed, timings and store data for future analysis. The lightweight plastic Transcend goggles “can save a full day’s ski or snowboard runs into PC software that plots route and performance information through every twist, turn or slalom gate,” according to this article.

 

The pace of innovation in the world of eyewear continues apace, with further advances slated for later in 2010. The Kopin Golden-I is a head-mounted display which provides a two-way connection to your desktop PC “reading out emails and documents (and controlled) through voice recognition.”
