Vuzix and Amazon Partner To Bring Augmented Reality Glasses with Alexa Support
10 January, 2018, 01:49 | Author: Brenda Erickson
Amazon confirmed Vuzix's claim of being first with Alexa-backed AR smart glasses and said it is "excited about the potential of the glasses and the ability to bring Alexa to customers in a new way". The CEO acknowledges that is a significant amount of money to drop on smart glasses and says the goal is to bring the price down to $500 by 2019.
Recent reports have revealed that a company called Vuzix will be releasing the first augmented reality glasses with Amazon's Alexa voice assistant integrated into its technology. By putting Alexa on as many third party devices as possible, it helps Amazon increase revenue since the personal assistant can arrange for purchases to be made from Amazon. By the company allowing Alexa to be used outside its own products, companies like Bose would be able to develop Bluetooth headphones that could compete with Apple's AirPods and Google's Pixel Buds - both of which work with their respective voice assistants. It will be shown off during this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES ), and it is expected to put special emphasis on the Alexa integration that it has achieved in its research and manufacturing.
Wearers, who must be Amazon customers or become Amazon customers to enable Alexa's capabilities, could for example ask the digital assistant to pull up a map or display sports scores on the glasses.
Augmented reality is a technology that projects computerized images onto a live video image from the real world, while its cousin virtual reality completely embeds the user in a 360-degree computer-generated world.
"I think everyone is going to come out with glasses sooner or later", he said.
It is touted that this is the first pair of smart glasses that will provide a large virtual screen and a lightweight build weighing around 85 grams.
Google was an early player in AR glasses, launching the Google Glass prototype before pulling back and focusing on adding AR features to its Pixel smartphone and releasing an enterprise-oriented headset.
