Ski goggles go digital

Helmet cameras are about to get some company in the first person snow sports video market. Liquid Image, already the makers of a digital underwater camera mask, is unveiling a camera-equipped ski goggle at an electronics show this weekend in Las Vegas.

The goggle has a 5-megapixel camera that shoots stills. It can also capture your painful head-over-heels tumble on that 40-degree mogul field in 720x480-pixel video with audio on its 16-megabyte internal memory. The goggle will retail for $149, but won't be available until June.
