Skimming down the ski slopes of Davos this year, wearing the latest gadgets from this month’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, digerati will be able to register their speed, altitude, position, distance, temperature, heart rate and even brain activity at any given second.

With point-of-view action cams attached to ski poles and helmets, the whole experience could be captured in wide-angle UltraHD quality and streamed to a smartphone screen or out to watching friends on Facebook.
