Team GeekWire is back at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to report on all the new technology gadgets, integrations, partnerships, and more announced for the first time by companies from around the globe. Amazon would generate revenue from its Alexa service, while Vuzix's smart glasses would easily appeal to the smart assistant's following. The Vuzix Blade weighs in at less than 3 oz. and is expected to ship commercially in early 2018.

Customers will be able to access Alexa's range of skills - as its voice applications are called - while in the vehicle.

Alexa integration into Toyota and Lexus infotainment systems will allow driver and passengers to ask for directions, control entertainment, queue news, control the smart home, and access other Alexa skills available through Amazon's marketplace.

The fusions of two globally recognized brands in the world are looking to collaborate to bring us another technological advancement in the automobile world and market.

As far as Google Assistant goes, Klipsch will debut new versions of its Three and One Heritage series speakers with the voice controls in tow.

Launched with speaker family back in 2014, Alexa is now taking on Google Assistant with its recent debut in the market of smartphones. In an interview with the outlet, Vuzix CEO Paul Travers said you can issue voice commands to Alexa and have information displayed on your field of view, so long as you have an Amazon account. The Company's products include personal display and wearable computing devices that offer users a portable high-quality viewing experience, provide solutions for mobility, wearable displays and virtual and augmented reality. They are generally identified by words such as "believes", "may", "expects", "anticipates", "should" and similar expressions. Subsequent events and developments may cause these forward-looking statements to change.
