Vuzix Blade AR Glasses With Alexa: Interview With Vuzix COO Paul Boris

Vuzix Blade AR Glasses With Alexa: Interview With Vuzix COO Paul Boris

Amazon is pushing for Alexa to be integrated into pretty much everything, from cars to fridges, thanks to providing developers with the tools to easily fit the virtual assistant into their devices.

Those include the top vendors like Acer, Asus, HP and Lenovo, all of whom are now prepping up to integrate the Alexa voice assistant on their upcoming notebooks and desktops.

Ford announced plans to begin testing Alexa in cars at CES past year, and BMW previously announced plans to begin adding Alexa support to its model lineup last September.

To use the features of Vuzix's AR glasses, Amazon says owners should be an Amazon subscriber first. We have reported about their glasses many times over the years.

Vuzix Corp. will show off a pair of smart glasses that can talk to Amazon.com Inc.'s voice-activated digital assistant and display information to the wearer's field of view, Vuzix Chief Executive Officer Paul Travers said in an interview. The glasses will be available starting sometime during the second quarter, priced at $1,000.


An Amazon spokeswoman has said that they are "excited about the potential of the glasses and the ability to bring Alexa to customers in a new way".

Six months since Amazon and Microsoft shook hands for coupling Windows 10 with Alexa, we are having the initial signs of its arrival. Sound pricey? It is, but interestingly, Vuzix Chief Executive Officer Paul Travers has said they're looking to get the price down to $500 United States dollars by 2019. In October, Sonos unveiled a smart speaker with Alexa's system for controlling music playback.

In Las Vegas it's generally agreed that the 2018 show is set to see the delivery of several new technologies built around voice and AI.

In the future, however, Dobbs thinks Amazon's first-to-market advantage will fade and the gap between the Echo and Google Home will close.
