Skiers and snowboarders looking to stay connected on the slopes without having to fumble around with cellphone should check out the Buhel Speakgoogle G33 Intercom. The gadget is a set of Bluetooth-enabled ski goggles that allows you to stay in touch with your friends hands-free. The goggles use a unique bone conduction to detect what you're saying without the need of a microphone.

The Speakgoogle G33 Intercom can connect to any device with Bluetooth. The goggles can be used to listen to music or take phone calls. If everyone has a pair of Speakgoggles on, an always-on intercom chat can be set up. The chat has a range of 500 meters (1,640 feet) and allows even those without phones to stay in touch. The goggle's functions are controlled via the buttons on the side, which appear big enough to be used with gloved hands.
