The powerboating fraternity has never been slow to embrace new gadgets - so when a product comes along that is able to add a fresh dimension to your boastful anecdotes about your heroic helming performance, it is only reasonable to expect it to do very well indeed. Video shades

Basically, these ‘Immortal Video Sunglasses’ are able, at the touch of a button, will record footage of whatever you’re looking at. They capture film at 25 frames per second (736 x 480 resolution) and come complete with 4GB of storage space and sufficient battery life for two hours of continuous filming.

Despite their high-tech appearance, the Immortal Video Sunglasses are apparently quite tough too, with splash-proof construction and a set of three interchangeable lenses as part of the package (Flame Orange, Dark Grey and Clear).

At £199.99, they’re not cheap, but if you want to prove beyond question how wonderful you are at the helm of your powerboat, these glasses might be just the thing.
