Recon Instruments Snow2If you're looking for something a little more rugged than Google Glass to take skiing or snowboarding, know this: Recon Instruments has just released its Snow2 heads-up display. This little Android-based guy fits inside a compatible set of goggles and displays a number of items, including your speed, analysis of any jumps you might do, altitude, distance, navigation, buddy tracking, phone calls and texts, and serves as a music controller.

It's maybe more Borg than Google Glass sexy, but it's also much cheaper and more suited to flying down the slopes. Snow2 itself runs $399. You can pair it with a set of goggles for another $150. It also can be had right now, whereas the sunglasses-friendly Recon Jet has been delayed.
