Recon Instruments brings mobile augmented reality goggles to the slopes.

November 10, 2010

Introducing  Transcend, Recon Instruments’ collaboration with Colorado’s Zeal Optics. Transcend is the world’s first GPS-enabled goggles with a head-mounted display system.

Minimum interaction is required during use, sleek graphics and smart optics are completely unobtrusive for front and peripheral vision making it the ultimate solution for use in fast-paced environments.

Transcend provides real-time feedback including speed, latitude/longitude, altitude, vertical distance travelled, total distance travelled, chrono/stopwatch mode, a run-counter, temperature and time. It is also the only pair of goggles in the world that boasts GPS capabilities, USB charging and data transfer, and free post-processing software all with a user-friendly, addictive interface.

Just like the dashboard of a sports car or the instruments of a fighter jet, Transcend’s display provides performance-enhancing data, but only when you choose to view it. Safe, smart, fun…all wrapped up in the hottest goggle frame of 2010/11.

The limited release of Transcend is now open to early-bird orders. You can purchase Transcend here now.

    They refuse to acknowledge a defective product. I

  2. They refuse to refund the defective product. Please help.
    I will try to dispute the debit card transaction. If you know of a better way please let me know.

    • Thanks for the heads-up! Can you sent me the letter.. If it’s like you say then I will publish it.
