Kiing is the first activity tracker designed specifically for skiers. Placed at the front and back of the skis, the system uses GPS, an accelerometer, and other sensors to monitor velocity, turns, and other data which are transmitted via Bluetooth to a wrist-worn device for interpretation. With this information, skiers can not only hone their skills but compete with friends and other skiers via social media sharing!

Deep Sea Love

Deep Sea Love

My scuba diving experience at the Great Barrier Reef was a pretty awesome one; the guys strapped me up in a wetsuit with all this heavy gear and I had a fascinating dive. If there is one thing that I would like to change about it, then it has to be the dive goggles. I have a high prescription number and the scuba gear usually comes generic numbers to the glasses. ‘Control Your Sight’ are goggles that feature number customization.
