If you’re one of those ludicrous people who exists only in action films and energy drink adverts, you can now check your messages on the slopes with Oakley’s high-tech Airwave Goggles.

A clever heads-up display built into the lenses means that information floats in front of your eyes – and, thanks to Bluetooth and GPS, there’s a wealth of it at your disposal.

The goggles tell you your speed and jump statistics; and, if you pair them with the official iPhone app, you can control your music and read text messages. It’s a spy-worthy bit of kit, although we worry it might be quite distracting. We don’t mean to go all Q on you, 007, but keep an eye out for trees, won’t you?
