CES 2016 - Paintball enthusiasts might want to check out the Airwave sports goggles, a collaboration between Recon Instruments and Empire Paintball.
The Empire EVS sports goggles uses the same insides as the Airwave, something Recon collaborated with Oakley on, but throws it into a new mask that can take a barrage of paintball hits to the face. The company says that the heads-up display found inside of the Empire EVS will display important information like ammo counts, field maps, and teammate locations.
Inside, there's a 1GHz dual-core processor, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity, with the Empire EVS powered by Android. The mask includes dual-pane lenses that will prevent internal fogging and a lower skirt that encourages ball bounding.
There's no news on price, but the Oakley Airwave retails for $649 or so, so we should see pricing on the Empire EVS floating somewhere around there.
