Recon HUD

Recon Instruments will be showing their patented, Android-powered HUD (Heads Up Display) in the Android booth at Mobile World Congress. Last month at CES Recon unveiled their HUD SDK for Android, and this time around we will get to see the MOD Live (Recon's name for this unit) in Barcelona. They're currently working with partners like Polar and Contour to third party apps to the HUD, but for now folks can use Recon’s free HQ Mobile app to access playlists on their phone, view and share run stats, see incoming calls, display text messages, and reply via the wearable wireless Bluetooth low energy remote. 

Android Central at Mobile World Congress

Currently available for snowsport enthusiasts, Recon plans to branch out to other outdoor sportsmen and partner with more manufacturers. Dan Eisenhardt, CEO of Recon Instruments says:

We are happy to be at the Mobile World Congress with Google at the Android stand. It is a great opportunity to show the diversity and customizable nature of our Android-powered MOD Live. Our HUD technology is currently available to snowsports enthusiasts and we will be bringing an adapted HUD solution into a number of different industries in the near future partnering with leading goggle, helmet and sunglasses brands to provide the optimum choice of fit, function and fashion to the public.

Recon Instruments' MOD Live currently works with Uvex, Briko, Zeal Optics, Alpina, and Scott and Smith brand "Recon Ready" goggles, and are available for $399.99 (€360) at major retailers around the globe. 

Now, about those Google Glasses. ...

Here is what I want: BT powered bullet counting magazines and a heart rate monitor integrated into this thing so I can have a real HUD like in first person shooters.

I could see these inside scuba diving mask to read pressure depth oxygen remaining and a comm link between the boat and fellow divers. So exciting.
