CES 2011: Ski goggles with a built-in video camera

LAS VEGAS — For all the snowboarders who want to capture that killer run without Warren Miller, a company called Liquid Image is making ski goggles with a built-in camera that captures high-definition video and photos.

The Antelope, Calif.-based company showed off the new goggles at a preview event for the Consumer Electronics Show on Tuesday night. The goggles can capture video in 1080p and 12-megapixel photos. The goggles have a built-in microphone with a wind guard located above the nose bridge.

They will retail for $399 and start selling in October.

Here is a video of Melanie Pearson, executive vice president of Liquid Image, showing how the goggles work. Apologies for the sound quality — this was taped at an event with hundreds of other people in the room.
