Amazon's Alexa Is Coming to Some Toyota and Lexus Cars

Amazon's Alexa Is Coming to Some Toyota and Lexus Cars

AR hardware company Vuzix designed a pair of smart sunglasses that are compatible with Amazon's Alexa. The glasses are set to launch in the second quarter of 2018 for $1,000.

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

The announcement came from Panasonic, which said the feature can function even if there is no internet connectivity. There's also an 8-megapixel camera for snapping photos.

This is the best shot of what it looks like to wear the Vuzix Blade. The Vuzix stock (VUZI) jumped on the reveal of the Vuzix Blade, mostly because of the Alexa integration. It felt much more vivid than Google Glass' smaller and more subtle display. "They also want it everywhere they are during the day".

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. In the home speaker segment also, Alexa-based devices sell around 70% in the U.S. market, leaving the rest to be divided among the other players.

Others, including Hyundai and Ford, have already made similar moves. Apple and Facebook are both encouraging app creators to develop augmented reality concepts, too. Asking for the weather, for example, pulled up a tiny widget showing the temperature in the upper right corner of my field of view.

It is reported that software for the Windows platform 10 will create a specialized application that will provide access to the voice assistant, Alexa.

Here at CES, I was wearing prototype hardware on sale to developers.

The thing that always rubbed me the wrong way about Google Glass though, was how after an underwhelming debut, the company seemingly forgot about its moonshot tech.
