RideOn are augmented reality glasses designed for snow lovers. With them we will be able to communicate with other skiers and participate in challenges against the clock, either beating our own times or those of our friends.
RideOn uses a combination of orientation sensors, camera, GPS and Bluetooth and WIFI connectivity to offer us overprinted and real-time information, including navigation through the different resorts of the world. We will know our exact position, we will be able to locate accommodations, cabins or chairlifts, for which we understand that you will have to feed all that information beforehand.
The goggles are made of polycarbonate and provide protection against impacts, complying with CE and FDA regulations and EN 174:2001 certification, with which they can replace our usual ski goggles without problems. The 500 mAh battery allows use for 8 hours in broad daylight without problems, and they can withstand more than 24 hours in standby. Its operation is similar to Google Glass, since the virtual images will be seen only by our right eye, although according to its creators its viewing angle triples that of Google glasses.
The campaign ends on February 19 and its goal is to raise $75,000, of which more than half have already been raised. We can get a unit for $499, which we will receive in September of this year.
