“Hey kids, we heard you like snowboarding video games – so now you can play video games, while you snowboard!”
Surprisingly, this isn’t actually the tagline for RideOn’s ‘World First’ augmented reality snowboard goggles…
Introduce technology seamlessly into the places you go to get away from it all…
The concept – loosely related to Oakley’s Airwave designs – aims to introduce technology seamlessly into the places you go to get away from it all.
Amongst its features, visible here, are the ability to use your goggles to communicate with someone literally within earshot! Feel the joy of Real Time Humiliation! And play fun and exciting games to liven up those truly dull days on the slope – I mean, Virtual Slalom, it really doesn’t get better than that!
Of course, we jest… If you really want to geek out while you hit the slopes, go ahead. But we’ve all seen Wall-E, don’t say you weren’t warned.
What do you think? Is it bad enough that we already Instagram our days away, or is there no such thing as too much tech on the hill? Let us know in the comments.
