Vuzix Launches Alexa-Enabled Digital Glasses

"Alexa, what is it I'm looking at?" In October past year, Sonos Inc unveiled a smart speaker with Alexa's system for controlling music playback.

The first augmented-reality (AR) glasses with Amazon.com Inc's Alexa voice assistant is to be shown next week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas - manufactured by a 75-employee company rather than the e-commerce giant's growing devices division.

LOUIS, Mo. _Amazon's digital assistant is making its way from speakers, mirrors, and appliances to some smart glasses.

As time goes by, the list will grow even further, which could ultimately position Alexa as the primary voice assistant for most consumers around the world. Among its own capabilities, Cortana can chime in to help you set up a brand new Windows 10 PC.

Voice assistants are key on smaller devices, such as glasses, where swiping is impractical. Or you ask Alexa, among its numerous other skills, to catch you up on the news, weather, and traffic while you're shaving, say.

The company says that the new Notebook is designed for working professionals, students and those looking for entertainment. At the heart, there is an 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor clubbed with 8GB RAM and a 256GB of inbuilt storage.

But Amazon wants Alexa nearby when you're out of the house, and not just on your phone or in the vehicle or on a laptop. Each of these have started developing Alexa Mobile Accessories for full hands-free integration with Amazon's virtual assistant. Amazon has confirmed that Vuzix's device is the first product of its kind to be Alexa-enabled.

Aside from Bose, Amazon is already working with a number of device makers, including Jabra, iHome, Beyerdynamic, Bowers and Wilkins, and AVS Solution Providers Linkplay, SUGR, and Libre Wireless.

It's worth pointing out that the glasses are not made by Amazon.

You'll still be able to see your real life physical surroundings at the same time.
