“Today’s goggles can display your speed and location, take pictures,
show text messages and more, but all of that advanced technology is
worthless if you can’t see,” says ABOM founder, Dave McCulloch. “We’ve
tried all the ‘anti-fog’ technologies on the market, from hydrophobic
coatings to electric fans, and none of them are very effective.”
McCulloch turned to his longtime friends, IP Attorney Howard Russell
and inventor Jack Cornelius, for a better solution. After years of
prototyping and testing, Cornelius and his team of engineers designed
KLAIR, an ultra-thin, transparent, conductive film sandwiched between
the inner and outer lens in the F-BOM goggle. When the film is heated up
it works much like a car’s rear window defroster, removing fog from the
goggles in seconds. A small, lightweight, rechargeable lithium-ion
battery mounted inside the goggle provides power.
The F-BOM features a scratch-resistant, polycarbonate lens from Carl
Zeiss to provide the best clarity with zero distortions, as well as 100
percent protection from UVA, UVB and UVC rays. Using an innovative and
intuitive system, the lens can be easily interchanged with red, yellow
and dark tints for different light conditions.
The F-BOM Kickstarter campaign
has a goal to raise $50,000 before October 31, 2014. ABOM will also
have a booth at the SIA tradeshow in January 2015.
