Amazon Alexa to release smart glasses

It is claimed that users can adjust the field of view and brightness of the smart glasses based on AR based on their requirements so that the wearable device is convenient to use outdoors or at home.

Vuzix Chief Executive Officer Paul Travers said that his Company will release its AR glasses by the second quarter at a cost of about US$1,000, Travers said.

Amazon hasn't said whether it will release its own branded smart glasses with Alexa, but Travers expects it to happen.

The augmented reality glasses with Alexa from Vuzix is expected to be unveiled for a quick experience during the CES 2018. AR is a technology that superimposes digital information such as maps, text messages and more onto a person's view of the real world, while VR submerses a user into a completely different digitally created world. It's for device makers and manufacturers to bring Alexa to a gaggle of on-the-go products, including so-called hearables, headphones, smart watches, fitness devices, and the like. This would make it possible for wearers to keep track of stock prices and sports scores using the spectacles. They could just wear the glasses to work, to events, or even while sipping coffee at a Café. So for those who do not have an account yet but are already planning to purchase the smart glasses, there is still time. But the product hitting Vuzix's booth during the show, the Vuzix Blade AR Smart Glasses, will apparently be more mainstream, and may remind attendees of a controversial project still brewing under Google's roof: Google Glass. It will start of expensive, but the company is hoping to have the price under $500 by 2019. Everyone's attention was previously focused on Apple and its rumored AR smart glasses. From there we'll send you to a page with smart devices, appliances and gadgets that work with an Alexa-enabled smart speaker, or one with Google Assistant baked inside. As a producer of compatible head-mounted displays for the technology, the company is no novice in the AR market. The eyewear is basically like the failed concept Google Glass, but an intelligent machine along for the ride. The idea behind the specs, which resemble sunglasses, is that you'll pair them with a smartphone you can leave in your pocket and purse.
