After that awesome weekend with the TC Throwdown last Saturday, I've been getting even more stoked for the upcoming ski/snowboard season. Earlier this week, Oakley announced they would be releasing a brand new pair of goggles that would have a type of heads-up display or HUD. Introducing the Oakley Airwave.

It may not be as technologically insane as terminator vision, but these goggles will keep track of your speed and altitude, display text messages and phone calls, and with GPS installed, they can be used as a tracking device. You can even upload trail maps to these bad boys.

Oakley teamed with Recon Instruments to install their latest technology called MOD Live. Using a low power Bluetooth wristband to control and navigate through the menus and a companion app for both iOS and Android, the Oakley Airwaves are the most state of the art goggles ever released.

According to Oakley CEO Colin Baden:

Our icon defines the leading edge of performance innovation, and the new Airwave goggle brings alpine sports into the future with a stunning array of capabilities. It utilizes cutting-edge electronics to give skiers and riders instant access to a world of information. Airwave represents the power and possibility of technology, and it comes with world-class optical performance, comfort and protection engineered over decades of Oakley innovation.

The Oakley Airwave goggle is available now at and will set you back $600.
