These Goggles Film Your Daring Deeds From Right Between Your Eyes

Illustration for article titled These Goggles Film Your Daring Deeds From Right Between Your Eyes

While most adrenaline junkies love the GoPro, here's a point-of-view camera solution that never gets in the way: a pair of goggles that shoot 1080p video and 8 megapixel photos, from right between your eyes.

Made by Colorado-based Zeal, the iON goggles pack a 170-degree wide-angle camera lens to shoot... well, whatever you want to shoot hands-free while wearing goggles. There's an in-goggle viewfinder if you can concentrate on such a thing, and the buttons on the side are designed to be used with gloved hands. Their li-on battery keeps you filming for three hours.

It's perhaps worth pointing out that the goggles themselves aren't bad, either, offering anti-fog high density UV optics and an impact-resistant frame so they don't smash as you film your first crash. If you film your first crash, sorry. They're available now direct from Zeal for $399. [Zeal via Ubergizmo]

In goggle viewfinder? So basically they could hook this up to a smartphone and have Project Glass going on right now? I mean, if the viewfinder is digital it shouldn't be that difficult for a phone to run it like a display and overlay information on it, right?
