The Recon Jet is a heads-up display (HUD) designed and developed in Vancouver, Canada by a very talented team at Recon Instruments. Designed with athletes in mind it comes with features, sensors and networking abilities comparable to current tablets & smartphones. In fact, you can link it with your iPhone or Android handset and leverage phone functions and apps.
The sensors include a 3D accelerometer, a 3D gyroscope, a 3D magnetometer, an ambient temperature and a pressure sensor for altimeter & barometer applications. It is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core chip with 1GB DDR2 SDRAM and 8GB of flash memory. The wide-screen display boasts a high definition image as if you were standing 7' from a 30" screen, plenty of room to view your most critical information. There is even an HD camera with microphone and speakers. Check out the Technical Specifications page for further features and information. All of this and it comes in at only 60 grams!
Recon's software development kit (SDK) and Web API allows developers to create apps that are sport or activity specific and take advantage of all the hardware packed into this eyewear. If you are a developer, check out their Developer Overview page.
Recon Instruments haven't forgotten about the winter athlete, check out their Snow2. The Snow2 actually preceded the Recon Jet and is a feature in many leading goggle brands.
