Toyota Adding Alexa to Select Cars in 2018

First Amazon Alexa-Enabled Digital Glasses to Be Shown at CES

Vuzix® Corporation, ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies and products for the consumer and enterprise markets, is pleased to announce the Vuzix Blade AR Smart Sunglasses were named Best AR on Show at CES 2018 by TechRadar, the largest UK-based consumer technology news and review site.

We arrived late Sunday night and strolled past an In-N-Out - a Double-Double seemed like a good way to kick off our week at this insane tech expo, where more than 170,000 attendees from 150 countries gather to get a glimpse of some of tomorrow's technology. Vuzix's Alexa integration is part of an Amazon program that allows third-party hardware manufacturers to put the digital assistant into their products.

This year, you can also expect a peek into the future of 5G connectivity; augmented reality; wireless charging; self-driving cars; 8K TVs; wearables; and much more.

Toyota's Entune 3.0 system debuted on its 2018 Camry and Sienna models a year ago and Lexus' version showed up a couple of months later on RC, LS, and LC models.


Toyota's Entune 3.0 system gets an upgrade to include a version of Alexa. As an example, drivers could tell Alexa to turn on the living room lights while the owner is pulling into the garage. This aside, the auto is expected to have Alexa in its infotainment system.

Keeping up with its growing integration list, Amazon's smart assistant Alexa is now exploring new territories.

"We have all seen how Alexa has transformed interaction in homes, but in today's world, we are constantly on the go". "They also want it everywhere they are during the day". General Motors plans to offer even more expanded e-commerce applications when it finishes integrating the Amazon service into its new GM Marketplace in the months to come.

"Downstream benefits like e-commerce" could eventually become a substantial source of revenue, acknowledged Scumniotales, especially when autonomous and fully driverless vehicles become part of everyday reality.
