Toyota will add Amazon Alexa to pick out vehicles in 2018

Android Things assisting with AI at CES 2018

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?

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.

According to Bloomberg, the augmented reality glasses from Vuzix was manufactured by a company with a mere 75 employees. Throughout past year, Alexa was added to non-Amazon devices including the HTC U11, Huawei Mate 9 and a Moto Mod for the Motorola Moto Z series. The device is created to present wearers with pertinent information directly in their field of view.

AR hardware company Vuzix designed a pair of smart sunglasses that are compatible with Amazon's Alexa. Following the news, Vuzix's shares increased by 8.5 percent to $7.

We'll see Vuzix's AR glasses with Alexa support before the summer of 2018, at a price point around $1,000 Dollars.

They'll be on the market later this year, and they will be pricey, about $1,000, but Travers says the hope is to eventually have them for sale for under $500. Of course, this would entail booming sales, among other factors, but Travers maintains optimism when asked about the future of the smart glasses with Alexa integration. The company is going to show off its new augmented reality glasses with the Alexa voice assistant at CES 2018 in Las Vegas next week.

The launch of the Alexa-enabled AR glasses would surely be a game changer in the industry. However, the Cupertino giant is not expected to release its high-tech spectacles until 2020.

Looking ahead John Scumniotales, head of products for Alexa's automobile wing, is confident that the technology can be put to far more ambitious use: "It's still really day one for us in terms of what we can do with Alexa in the vehicle".
