Ever find yourself shredding the gnar and wishing you could share the breathtaking rush of scenery with others? Well, now you can, courtesy of Zeal Optics. Not content to sit on its GPS-laden laurels, the company’s added a new twist to the ‘ol polarized ski googles, embedding the iON with an HD camera for 170-degree wide angle recording. The inbuilt module, centered up top, pulls in video and audio at full 1080p and can be controlled using an array of buttons alongside the mask or via the bundled PC / Mac software. If you’re not interested in reliving your downhill trek one swoosh at a time, there’s always the 8 megapixel cam for photo-taking. Unfortunately, this high-tech eyewear can’t wirelessly transmit your captured media — at least, not this version — so you’ll have to make due with the included microSD card. Sound like a neat proposition? Good, the be prepared to cough up $399 for this high-def slope accessory. Official presser awaits you after the break.
