Liquid Image Scuba Series Wide Angle Dive Mask | US$349.99 | www.liquidimageco.com
the Liquid Image XSC (or Xtreme Sport Cams) Scuba Series Wide Angle Dive Mask is not exactly the newest product Liquid Image has to offer but i thought it is fitting to be giving it a feature since most people up north would be hitting the dive spots during this hot summer season. one look at this $349.99 dive mask you will notice that this is not your run-of-the-mill dive mask. it comes equipped with 1/2.5″ 5.0-megapixels CMOS sensor camera that’s capable of capturing 2560 x 1920 still images and high definition 720p video recording at 30 frames per second (fps), and it does all these at a depth up to 40-meters (130-feet).

if you are an outdoor adventure guy, you will agree that capturing those exhilarating moments in first person perspective is kind of like a trophy to any adrenalin junkies. in the past, we have to content with standard definition, and subsequently 720p quality strap-on action cam to do the job. however, miniaturization of technology occurs so quickly and now your glorious moments can be captured in full high definition (HD) 1080p quality with the Liquid Image Summit and Impact series goggles.

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.
