What if the goggles could analyze your skiing and then offer improvements? Would you buy it?

Alex Soojung-Kim Pang

Well, my skiing is hopeless. But if it made me more aware of what I was doing on the slopes, that would be a completely different proposition. It might make me a more self-aware skiier, able to improve and to understand HOW to improve.

The problem with the goggles as they're currently advertised is that they offer a distraction from what should be an engaging, all-consuming activity. They promise to mentally whisk you away from your vacation, the crisp air and fine powder, and give you back to your voice mail and the office. Not. That. Useful.
