New Ski Goggle Accessory Doubles as a Viewfinder for Your Contour Camera, and So Much More

January 28th, 2012

Recon-MOD_large.pngIf you haven’t been paying attention
to ski goggle technology – don’t worry, neither were we – it
turns out that we’re living in the future. Thanks to the Micro
Optic Display (aka MOD) created by Recon Instruments, you can check GPS
information, speed and even view text messages right on your goggles.

A partnership between Contour and Recon
Instruments takes it a step further. Attach MOD Live to your goggles
and pair it with your Contour+ or ContourGPS digital video camera and you’ll be
able to see what your camera sees.

MOD Live provides a display that
appears to the eye as a 14 inch screen and lets you use your goggles
as a viewfinder for your camera. No more worrying about whether or
not the footage looks good after you’ve already gone down the hill
– you can watch it in real time.

The app isn’t available yet, but when
it launches you’ll be able to pick it up from Recon
. You can pick up your MOD or MOD Live direct from Recon Instruments Online Shop.
