you don’t to be a fighter pilot or an AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter pilot to get a heads up on real time information. the Zeal Transcend GPS winter sports goggles have a built-in GPS, with a tiny display inside the right lens, feeding the user with real-time location, speed, altitude and jump info right into your eye. granted, this isn’t a true ‘head-up display’ (HUD) but this is the closest you get for now.

it even comes with a USB port (what gadget doesn’t come with USB these days?) for downloading and analyzing stats on your computer (PC & Mac compatible). it has, not surprisingly, a Google Map overlay. ok who does not use any Google products, please raise your hand. oh, everyone huh?

two lens types are available for your choosing: the SPPX polarized + photochromic lens (aka transition lens) and the SPX polarized lens. the Zeal Transcend GPS starts at €399 (approximately US$695). a small price to pay for not getting lost in the snow white alps. i think.
