Vuzix and Amazon Partner To Bring Augmented Reality Glasses with Alexa Support

201-lg-cto-2018-ces-interview

Next week, during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, a company named Vuzix will introduce a new pair of AR smartglasses that will feature Amazon's virtual personal assistant Alexa. These manufacturers have debuted brand new PC models that are created to work with Alexa at this week's International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Fortunately, the Blade worked in every other way - and most of us know how Alexa works by now, so I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt.

But they contain a decent amount of tech that connects to a wearer's phone and effectively provides a wearable head-up display, a built-in camera, microphone and side-mounted touchpad to make the glasses a "smart" device. Amazon would generate revenue from its Alexa service, while Vuzix's smart glasses would easily appeal to the smart assistant's following.

Even, reports are coming that Acer on Monday a press release said that Alexa will come to select Aspire, Spin, Switch, and Swift notebook models as well as Aspire all-in-one PCs starting the first quarter this year.

European Union playing dirty in Brexit talks
Comparatively, maintaining the status quo would see migration falling from 232,000 in 2020 to 220,000 a decade later. The Prime Minister has confirmed that Britain will not pay for access to the European financial market.

But what if you could not only hear that forecast from Alexa, but also see the weather prediction being depicted in a very realistic way across the inside of your new smart glasses? Sound pricey? It is, but interestingly, Vuzix Chief Executive Officer Paul Travers has said they're looking to get the price down to $500 United States dollars by 2019.

The Drive reached out to Toyota regarding which cars will receive Alexa integration first, the possibility of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-equipped Toyotas, and recommendations for drivers less than thrilled with the idea of an always-on microphone embedded in their new vehicle.

It's worth noting that Amazon and Apple aren't the first ones to bring AR glasses to the market. Vuzik's Travers expects Amazon to eventually offer its own version of Alexa-enabled AR glasses.
