Recon Instruments brings to CES Snow2

Snow2 is the name of the device that users put inside their goggles. But, there is also a complete kit called Oakley Airwave 1.5, with Snow2 integrated already. It is the result of collaboration between Recon and Oakley

Recon's technology looks similar to Google Glass, which is the best known heads-up display currently. It allows users to retrieve information without having to look at the phone or a smart watch. Recon's Snow2 includes the Jet set mounted on the glasses and is intended for people like athletes who require instant access to information such as trail map, performance metrics, texts and calls. It is already hugely popular among skiers.

Users can mount Snow2 to their own goggles if they wish, but Recon works with a number of different companies to offer consumers different styles of glasses.

In combination with an Apple's iPhone or similar smartphone, the Snow2 can display all kinds of data: altitude, speed, location or compass. Some information will work well without any device.

The Recon’s Snow2 can be bought as a standalone for $399. The Oakley Airwave 1.5 costs $649, and the Snow2 HUD with UVEX G.GL 9 goes for $549.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
