A built-in HD camera allows you to take photos or record video. It should also be suitable for live streams that you can share between multiple Sirius AR goggles.

If you are skiing in a group, you should be able to communicate with each other through AR goggles and easily identify your friends during the ride by displaying the digital name. Watch the video below to see what it looks like.

Sirius AR goggles require a connection to your smartphone. It should also allow you to make phone calls through the headset, provided you have a decent network in the mountains. According to the manufacturer, Sirius will be available for pre-order in different versions from February. Prices are not yet known.
