As the winter holidays approach, people are getting ready to go on vacation, leaving behind computers and other such personal equipment. However, Oakley has manufactured a new type of goggle which allows users to read their email and play music as well, all through a special screen on their eye-wear.
The new Oakley Airwave goggles can hook up an iPhone or an Android based phone or a tablet, which allows the users to read their emails just by looking at the screen of their eye-wear. The device also displays the speed of the skier, location, altitude and distance traveled as they glide through the snowy slopes.
The goggles have been priced at £500 and can also connect incoming calls to an earpiece. Apart from reading emails, the users can also listen to music, make phone calls through a connection, as well as study piste maps. Text messages and emails appear straight on the screen and in front of the eyes.
Music stored in a phone can be played through the goggles as well and the wireless controller on the wrist can help a user navigate through the playlist. The data is displayed on a corner of the screen. The goggles were launched on October 31, 2012, and were well received by holiday and adventure enthusiasts.
