Oakley's Airwave brings heads-up display goggles

As a winter sports enthusiast, skier and, sometimes snowboarder, I'm pretty excited about the new Oakley Airwave goggles with heads-up display -- bringing a new layer of geeky enjoyment to my Tahoe winters.

On-mountain information such as speed, altitude, and friends' locations are accessed via wrist control with easy-to-navigate-with-gloves-on fat button controls, and information is displayed right in front of the eye, perceived by the wearer to be the size of a 14-inch screen that is five feet away.
