RideOn GoGlasses (2016)

RideOn GoGlasses

Description: Just imagine it’s the wintertime and the holidays are fast approaching. Some of us might stay at home, but millions of people turn to the ski slopes and hit the fresh powder on the black runs. It is these people that go on ski holidays that GoGlasses is aiming for with its ski mask that overlays augmented reality information during ski sessions and downhill runs. The concept sounds amazing, you can take videos, pictures, live stream, play, send messages as well as getting guidance on all the popular ski tracks. Yes, this is Google Glass for Ski Nerds!

Working with Optinvent this French designed startup hopes it will help both ski instructors and sports professionals. Using a mix of both virtual reality and augmented reality this tasty looking bit of wearable tech did achieve its funding goals, so expect to see them in the ski shops in the very near future.

RideOn GoGlasses

Review: I’m not quite sure where to start with the ‘RideOn GoGlasses’ AR pair of ski goggles. It was supposed to feature a screen display “3 times bigger than Google Glass” and with new technology, but what we got in return was an Indiegogo fail with thousands of customers ripped-off with no refund on the money. On paper, it did sound like a good idea and a good use of AR technology, but it seems it was not meant to be and only a few developer devices were ever seen.
