Recon's extreme sports gear will now stream your death-defying stats straight to Facebook


Much has been written of the loneliness of the long-distance runner, but has anything been done to combat the solitude of the slopes? Recon Instruments is doing its part to bring extreme types closer to their social network by adding Facebook integration to the Snow2 heads-up display. The hardware will shortly be able to stream stats like speed, vertical descent and distance covered straight to your supportive friends back home. The feature is the primary component of the ReconOS 3.2 update, which daredevil users can download from December 18th, with the company promising that more social networks will be connected in the future. Personally, we're waiting for the moment when the Snow2 can live-tweet the profanities we utter as we hurtle to our icy doom.
