Skiers and snowboarders of the world, you've been flying blind. 

GogglePal is here to change that, enabling you to unlock a mountain of data so you can track and meet with just a glance. 

Now, turn any pair of your goggles into an augmented reality heads-up display, for your next ski season!

GogglePal, the first of its kind that is compatible with any pair of goggles, enables you to add augmented reality and a real-time heads up display to any pair of goggles. Simply attach the small GogglePal AR-HUD device to your lens, and you're ready to unlock a mountain of data, virtual treasures, and games. Whether you challenge yourself or your friends, GogglePal tells your mountain story with the information that matters most.

GogglePal revolutionizes the on-mountain experience. It's where the digital world meets the real world in skiing and riding.

What the world has been saying about GogglePal. 

For press inquiries, please contact press@gogglepal.com.

Created by skiers and riders, for skiers and riders, GogglePal helps you track your stats like speed, vertical, calories burned, acceleration, time and direction, and see it all in real time from a small heads up display right in the corner of your eye. 

Even better, you can challenge your friends, create on-mountain treasure hunts, and track your improvement over the season. It’s your altimeter, GPS, trail map and more; and you don’t have to take off your gloves to use it. 

Stay in the moment and enjoy the mountain. Your GogglePal is designed to be worry-free.
Stay in the moment and enjoy the mountain. Your GogglePal is designed to be worry-free.

GogglePal is the world's first universally mountable augmented reality heads up display for ANY goggle. From the cheap pair you inherited from your older brother to the latest, quick-changing lens models, your goggles are naturally GogglePal compatible. Over the last two years, our engineers have been hard at work testing and fine tuning the technology to be smaller, lighter and more affordable than the competition. 

GogglePal is small. Very small. The projection device sits inside your goggle without obstructing your vision, held in place by a subtle, super-strong magnet. The lightweight controller pack secures to your goggle strap with a simple clip. The most recent prototype of the controller pack and projection device weigh just 58 grams.

GogglePal is able to stay so light in part because it pairs seamlessly with your iPhone. Your GogglePal and iPhone work together (through the companion app) to store data and connect with your friends. 

When it comes to essential riding equipment, GogglePal takes center stage.

We've been working on GogglePal for a long time, researching technologies, developing software, 3D printing and testing prototypes to design a seamless augmented reality experience. Here's where we've been... and where we're going.

GogglePal is initially designed for the ski and snowboard market, but it can be so much more...

Hello, it's good to meet you. We're GogglePal Team, a team of avid skiers / boarders and engineers.

For years, snow sports hobbyists have been flying blind. Over the course of many ski seasons, we decided that it was time to add another layer of fun to our days on the mountain. After countless hours of research, piles of design sketches, and boxes of prototypes, we created GogglePal, your best pal on the mountain.

It used to be that the virtual world was confined to our computers or our pockets. Now GogglePal brings hands-free AR-HUD technology and data tracking to the mountains. No more fumbling with mittens, losing your pals, or dropping your phone in the snow.

With GogglePal, every day on the mountain can be truly memorable. Hi-tech augmented reality displays aren’t just for sci-fi movies anymore; they’re for skiing, and they’re fun.

Technology is already an important part of adventure sports, whether you're texting your friends on the go or tracking the number of runs you take. With GogglePal's augmented reality heads up display, it's easier than ever to stay connected, track performance and play games. 

GogglePal is bringing futuristic technology to lenses everywhere; and you don’t have to break the bank or look like a Storm Trooper to join in the fun! This augmented reality technology has never been so versatile and affordable.

We hope you love it, too!

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges with this project are like a lot of other hardware projects. Challenges include the timely manufacturing and sourcing of the materials needed to produce the hardware and software in the quantities we need.

To mitigate these risks, we've brought on experienced and knowledgable team members who have experience taking a project and seeing it from prototype to final product. Their experience will help mitigate these risks. We have also partnered and nurtured close relationships with factories with proven track records. We trust them completely to make our GogglePal dream a reality, and trust them, too, to manufacture a high quality, high performance device.

Of course, as with any startup and product campaign, unforeseen challenges do come up. You can be assure that we will keep our backers up to date and well informed throughout the process.
