Raspberry Pi-Powered Snowboard HUD from Random Stuff of Chris:
This is the last post (for a while) in this series on hacking together a pair of Heads-Up-Display snowboard goggles. At some point in the future I might revisit this and add in some more sensors and update the display — I still haven’t added in the temperature sensor and there are some really easy things to do in Python to add more functionality (e.g. keeping track of maximum speed, stopwatch functionality etc). This picture shows all the components put together.
So in summary, it seems it is possible to hack together something that approximates a pair of Heads-Up-Display snowboard goggles. Although I’m not too sure about actually carrying around all that kit for real.
Also probably best not to be strapping things to your face that could poke out your eyes during an accident.
