Adidas has introduced as a pair of snowboard goggle for 2017. Called Adidas Progressor C, this swanky pair of snow sports gear from German sporting gear giant features a Quick-Shift Lenspod System to meet the growing demand for easily interchangeable lenses.

RCH Racing and Ken Roczen Collaborates with Dodge for Limited Edition Oakley Racing Goggle

This come as an odd collaboration to us. Anyway, as the post title says, motocross racing team RCH and its newly inducted motocross world champion, German Ken Roczen, has announced a special pair of racing goggle (for motocross, naturally), the Dodge SRT Hellcat Limited Edition Goggle, in collaboration with Oakley. Things get weirder as this pair of goggle is actually made to celebrate the 707hp supercharged HEMI V8 engine, but is signed by Roczen and will be worn by him at the Budds Creek Pro Motocross Nation in Mechanicsville, Md, on June 27, 2015. It is a pair of racing goggle, alright, but one that’s mean for motocross. Continue reading RCH Racing and Ken Roczen Collaborates with Dodge for Limited Edition Oakley Racing Goggle

Abom Zero Fog Snow Goggles – The World’s First Snow Goggle with Active Anti-fog Technology

Snow sports lovers can now say goodbye to the constant battle with fog up goggles with the Abom (short for Abominable) Zero Fog Snow Goggles. Billed as the world’s first snow google with active anti-fog technology, there are no vents to meddle with or fans to turn on; instead, it uses patented KLAIR technology which consists of an invisible heat-conductive film sandwiched between two anti-scratch coated Carl Zeiss polycarbonate lenses. A rechargeable battery is used to send current through the film to heat the lens and thus, keeping the fog at bay. A pretty ingenious solution which prompts us to think why we didn’t think of that? Perhaps someone did, but the heat conductive transparent film wasn’t invented yet? Continue reading Abom Zero Fog Snow Goggles – The World’s First Snow Goggle with Active Anti-fog Technology

You Can Now View Video and Control Garmin VIRB with Oakley Airwave 1.5 Snow Goggles

Unless Oakley starts building camera into their snow goggles, we think the collaboration between Oakley and Garmin (or any action cam for that matters) sounds like a logical move. Via wireless connectivity and a dedicated app, you can now view live video feed, as well as data from Garmin VIRB Elite action camera on the Airwave’s heads up display and even control the VIRB using the glove-friendly remote for Airwave 1.5, which in our humble opinion, kind of address a shortcoming in the aspect of control of the VIRB, but the size that thing (the action cam) never cease to irk us. With this combo, you can now zip down the powder slopes and see what the camera is recording along with the data overlaid onto the video.

there are apps out there that offer you realtime data such as airtime, speed and attitude when you hit the alps but can you read those data without having you to take your eyes off your path and do they protect your eyes at the same time? we see. they can’t but with the Oakley Airwave Goggle you can. it features a tiny Heads Up Display (HUD) built-in to the goggle that’s equivalent to a 14-inch display watched from five-foot away and it is located at the bottom right of the wearer’s periphery which means, information can be read without literally taking your eyes off from whatever you are doing.

previously we have seen Russian-based artist Gogglerman’s impressive mechanical iris wristwatch and now he’s back with new work of art which we are equally impressed. as his nick suggest, he is a very much a goggles person and naturally he’d present something surround the object of his love. his latest instructables is a pair of steampunk goggles dubbed “N-Axis”. though i got to say there isn’t much go around here except for some awesome images for our adoration. however, if you are an expert craftsman, you could probably head on down his instructables page and check out his pictorial guide on how to create one for yourself. however, i do have to forewarn you that there’s no written instruction but just a series of pictorial guide. in the meantime, blast past the jump and check out a gallery of this brassy goggles called “N-Axis”.

i didn’t think fish scales would have any use other than going straight into the trash. however, one art student by the name of Erik de Laurens from the Royal College of Art explored the idea of using fish scales as material for more useful items in life. using just heat and pressure, Erik managed to bond the scales together without adding any bonding agents. the resultant material is what he dubs as “fish scale plastic” which were then used to create items like swim goggles, tumblers and eyeglass frames and even a table with an inlay of a fish. more images of Erick de Laurens’ work of art after the break.

if Liquid Image’s wide angle dive mask price tag is off budget for you, perhaps this ¥7,980 (about US$100) underwater video camera dive mask should be easier on your wallet. it’s 2.0-megapixels CMOS sensor camera is equally capable of high definition video of 1280 x 960 resolution at 30 frames per second (fps) and is also capable of capturing still images at 2560 x 1920 resolution. the downside is, it can only go as deep as 5-meter, which is of course, a far cry from the wide angle dive mask’s 40-meter depth. however, it does come with a snorkel.
