    The video above is from Phandroid.com

    This isn't exactly news that is directly related to this site, but we thought it was cool enough to share with you guys regardless. If you just can't wait for a set of Android-Powered Project Glass Google Goggles, and you have quite a bit of cash to burn, then Oakley has a fairly impressive simulacrum of that yet to be launched device. They are a set of high-teck goggles for skiers called the Airwave, and they retail for $599.99. While that price is a tough pill to swallow, the features are cutting edge. The Airwave googles can directly link to your Android device and offer a sharp-looking heads up display (HUD). Here's a quote with some more details, and a video above of the very "cyberpunk" looking goggles.

    Just imagine what sort of cool tech we will see in just a couple more years!

    Wow, I see these as being quite useful for avid snowboarders/skiers, etc. Wonder how well they work.

    Those are way too cool for fruit-booters. Boarders only =p

    Okay, so who owes me $10 for my prediction that Oakley would be connected with Google's glass tech?dancedroid

    Also makes me wonder if we have this, what does the military have?
