iON Goggles film your brilliance right on your nose

by 8 years ago

I’m a huge fan of the GoPro HD Hero 2, an extremely tough, extremely useful little camera. But for some sports fans, it’s a bit inconvenient, and reasonably so.

So, if you want to capture everything you do on the slopes, or capture what it’s like to faceplant, you now have another option: the iON Goggles camera.

The best part is that usually gadgets like this sacrifice being good at one thing for being good at something else, but the iON is both a great camera and a great set of goggles. The camera has a 170 degree fish-eye lens and can record either 1080p video or take a series of 8MP still photos, and the battery will last for 3 hours. The buttons are designed to be used without having to take off your gloves, to boot.

The goggles, meanwhile, are anti-fog, impact resistant, and offer 100% UV protection.

About the only downside is that combining goggles and camera is a bit costly: These will run you $400. On the other hand, one way or the other, that video will be absolutely worth it.
