SAN JOSE, Calif., April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicon Valley-based AR Devices unveils GogglePal, the next generation of wearable technology for skiers and snowboarders. The announcement of the world's first universally mountable heads-up display for goggles comes in conjunction with the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund this industry-changing technology.
Bringing wearable tech and augmented reality (AR) to the snowsports world like never before, the small and lightweight GogglePal magnetically attaches to the lower corner of a user's goggle lens allowing them to track speed, vertical, calories burned, time, location and direction, all in real-time. Not only does this game-changing device track useful statistics, it also connects skiers and riders with their friends through on-mountain gaming and stat sharing via the free iOS GogglePal app.
To fund further development of this innovative product, GogglePal has launched a 30-day Kickstarter campaign. Visit Kickstarter.com to learn more about:

"GogglePal is inspired by the belief that augmented reality and wearable technology are the future of the outdoor industry," said David Shao, CEO and founder of AR Devices. "GogglePal transforms a user's on-mountain experience with real time data and the ability to bring fitness and performance tracking to the mountain at an attainable price point."
GogglePal, with its patented universal-mount technology, is the first product of its kind to work with any goggle. This significantly lowers the price point ($100 vs. $1,000) allowing tech-loving skiers and riders to bring wearable technology to the mountain. Users will not only be able to take their performance to the next level, but will be able to share, communicate and game with their community.
