Self Adjusting Snowboarding Goggles

Check out these very cool snowboarding goggles from Uvex Sports. They’re powered by a AAA battery, and have the ability to automatically switch between the dark lens for bright sunlight, and the high contrast lens for flat lighting conditions. They use liquid crystal technology to switch “instantly” between the two styles of lens allowing you to wear one pair of goggles on the slopes all day. The battery is said to last approximately 200 hours as well.

These high tech goggles will set you back $230 and are shipping in September, just in time for the impending Winter months. I’m interested in hearing how these work out, as I could see this technology possibly making it’s way over to high mountaineering goggles as well. Interesting stuff.
