This Paintball Gear from CES 2016 Features a Heads-Up Display

Intel's Recon Instruments developed a nifty piece of paintball gear titled Empire EVS. Outfitted with smart features, this paintball accessory is designed to keep all paintball enthusiasts at the top of their game.

Most paintball players know that the game can turn into quite the war zone. To advance the skills of a player, Recon Instruments partnered with Empire Paintball to create a super smart mask and goggle hybrid. This paintball gear uses a technology known as 'Snow2' to withstand an array of paint-based problems. However, the most interesting feature on this gadget is the heads-up display, which is designed to show critical information during battle, such as ammo counts, field maps and teammate locations.

While the dual-pane lenses prevent internal fogging and promote ball bouncing, the mask features a 1GHz dual-core processor, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-fi, as well as GPS.
