Ski goggles with magnetised lenses make sense – until you wipeout

The problem with spending a lot of time on the slopes during ski season is that your goggles may not be up to handling the variety of different lighting conditions that can occur through the day. Anon believes it has fixed that problem with its new M1 ski goggles, by using the power of magnets.

The M1 goggles, which are unfortunately set to launch after this year’s Australian snow season, use powerful magnets to attach different lenses to the body, allowing users to quickly change their view with changing lighting conditions on the slopes. The spherical lenses allow an increased viewing range, while perimeter venting prevents fogging up.

The biggest concern is just how strong the magnets will actually be – if you tend to fall off your skis or snowboard in spectacular fashion, magnetised filters are probably going to go missing pretty easily.
