We bring you a first look at the Liquid Image Apex HD+ Wi-Fi snowboarding goggles from CES 2013. The Apex HD+ goggles have a built-in high definition video camera that can live stream to your iOS or Android phone or tablet, and can also record at 1080p 30fps or 720p 60fps, so you can show off you videos later. In addition, the Apex HD+ WiFi can also shoot still images. The camera itself is tilt-able within 30 degrees, so you can get a great angle regardless of your stance or activity. Definite an interesting product from the folks at Liquid Image - and we give you a look at how it all works in this episode.

For an RC system to the max, check out Fat Shark. Although they already sell their cams and headsets separately, they now have an all-in-one system with VR VGA video goggles with a 4WD FPV remote controlled car with its own cam for a driver’s eye view. The remote can control the camera direction with a tracking mechanism that can be controlled with only a pan or tilt of the head. They also sell an Aviator Edition goggle to go with RC planes. Contact Fat Shark to get in on the action by mid-July.

We understand that the gadget really doesn’t do anything, still there is always room for another warped view of the planet.
