LEDs in goggles keep swimmers on course
Swimming from one end of a pool to the other in a straight line is now a lot more easier than before. Thanks to a new pair of swim goggles with LEDs that can help keep a swimmer on the right track and swim in a straight.
Powered by a high-precision compass, accelerometer, and a microprocessor, the OnCourse Goggles with LEDs are easy to use while a swimmer is on the water. You just look at a far-off target where you want to end up ? like an anchored buoy ? push a button on the side of the goggles to lock in that destination, and you?re ready to swim.
When you?re swimming in the right direction, an LED above each eye glows green. When you start to veer off course, the individual LEDs will switch to yellow, and then red, to indicate that you?re swimming in the wrong direction. Once you reach your checkpoint and want to set a new course, you just look in the direction of another target and hit the button on the side of the goggles again.
