Liquid Image Snow Camera Goggle unveiled

Liquid Image, the company behind the scuba diving masks that contain camcorders in them so you can record fish, has moved on to the next sport - snowboarding and skiing.

The company has announced "the world's first snow goggle with an integrated digital camera" for the action-bound.

The goggle itself contains a wide angle lens, a 5MP (2560 x 1920) camera mode and a video mode that records D1 video (720 x 480) at a rate up to 30 frames per second with audio.

LED lights inside the goggle indicate the mode to the user while large side buttons along the right side of the frame allow for greater dexterity while wearing gloves.

The internal memory has 16MB NAND Flash, but will take a micro SD/SDHC card up to 16GB, it also has an estimated battery performance of 2200 still images or 2.20 hours of video.

The Summit Series Snow Camera Goggle model 335, as it will be known is estimated to ship late summer 2010, unfortunately not in time for this season, but in time for next one.

It is expected to cost $149.
