Vuzix is launching the first Alexa-enabled AR glasses at CES 2018
Vuzix is a company that has been making smart glasses for years, but their upcoming model seems to be something special. The company will introduce Alexa’s first enabled augmented reality glasses at CES 2018.
Once you wear them, you can ask Alexa questions as usual, and the results will go directly to the glasses display. For example, if you ask Alexa for directions, the glasses will show you a map on the AR display. The only requirement is to have an active Amazon account.
“Never before has a product been designed where you can see overlaid information, indoors or out, such as patient data, mapping directions, restaurant menus, weather information, alerts and more without picking up a second screen. Truly revolutionary, Vuzix Blade Smart Sunglasses are a perfect companion to a smartphone, allowing users to keep their phone in their pockets for almost everything. Finally fashion meets technology in the wearable display arena.”
If a pair of shades that can talk to Alexa sounds the most intriguing of the bunch, you’ll have to be willing to shell out $1,000 for them. Vuzix chief Paul Travers knows that’s a pretty high price point, but the company hopes to be able to sell them for under $500 by 2019.
Vuzix believes it’s a matter of time for all competitors to integrate Alexa into their wearable products, so its proposal should be at a competitive price.
