According to the company the Liquid Image Summit Series is the world's first pair of snow goggles with an integrated digital camera, and PC Advisor got a quick hands-on at CES.
The Summit Series has a wide angle lens with a 5Mp stills and video camera to capture all the thrills and spills of skiing and snow-boarding. The camera records 720x480 video, with audio, at up to 30 frames per second (fps).
There's 16MB flash memory, and a Micro SD/SDHC card slot allows users to expand the storage up to 16GB. There's a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that should, Liquid Image says, last for nearly two and a half hours in use.
It seems easy to operate, with a single button for on, off and changing the mode, with just one other button. An LED within the goggles lets you know when you are recording. Recording is a simple case of switching the device on, selecting a mode and hitting the shutter button.
The first model of the series, the Summit Series Camera Goggle 335, should ship this summer, and is expected to cost around $149.
