Shock Shades

The lighting environment during skiing can be particularly difficult, involving highly reflective snow, bright sunshine, rapid changes from bright light to shadow, and the focus of the skier directed to a narrow area of the visual field. Existing ski goggles, whilst a large and growing high-margin market, poorly satisfy the needs of skiers. We propose ski-goggles with opacity adjusted by simply moving the head in specific gestures, dramatically improving utility for a small increase in manufacturing cost. The technology for this product exists and is proven in multiple markets, it is simply a novel combination directed to a specific application.
