Recon Instruments, just announced that it will be displaying their patented Heads-up Display (HUD) at the Android stand at the 2012 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Recon was chosen because of the success they have had with the action snow industry. They will be demoing their Android-powered MOD Live HUD at the event.
Just last month at CES 2012 Recon announced plans for an SDK for the new HUD product category, a category Recon created. The Android-powered MOD Live provides application developers with a unique opportunity to decide how and what data and media skiers and riders capture, share and play while on the mountain. Recon is currently working with partners like Polar and Contour, to develop the first third party applications. According to a Press release with Recon Instruments.
Users that sync their MOD Live with smartphones via Recon’s free HQ Mobile app can also access playlists on their phone, view and share run stats, and see incoming calls on MOD Live’s unobtrusive display. MOD Live even utilizes SMS relay technology to display text messages, and users can reply via MOD Live’s wearable wireless Bluetooth low energy remote.
Dan Eisenhardt, CEO of Recon Instruments said “We are happy to be at the Mobile World Congress with Google at the Android stand. It is a great opportunity to show the diversity and customizable nature of our Android-powered MOD Live. Our HUD technology is currently available to snowsports enthusiasts and we will be bringing an adapted HUD solution into a number of different industries in the near future partnering with leading goggle,helmet and sunglasses brands to provide the optimum choice of fit, function and fashion to the public.”[singlepic id=22326 w=320 h=240 float=right]
