Interesting, but I don't think I'll hold my breath. The Ski goggles are expected to be available in Fall of 2010. They don't even have a mock-up of anything for biking, just a claim that they'll be "stylish, compact sunglasses". Judging from the bulk of the ski goggles, I have my doubts about how compact the sunglasses will be. And they'd better have interchangeable clear lenses, because I do a lot of riding after dark and I don't want to have to wear sunglasses.
Still, maybe they'll be worth looking at in a few years. At least the price on the ski goggles is reasonable at $350-450. That's not much worse than a GPS bike computer.
Hmmm, I also don't see any mention of battery life. That's always an issue with GPS. I wonder how much battery they can fit into stylish, compact sunglasses? Well, by the time they're available, battery technology will have advanced again.
