Ford announced plans to begin testing Alexa in cars at CES previous year, and BMW previously announced plans to begin adding Alexa support to its model lineup last September.
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. So for those who do not have an account yet but are already planning to purchase the smart glasses, there is still time. In theory, introducing Alexa to the Windows 10 environment presents an element of competition - consumers could opt to use Amazon's service over Microsoft's own. The company is going to show off its new augmented reality glasses with the Alexa voice assistant at CES 2018 in Las Vegas next week.
Vuzix is in the business of smart glasses for over 20 years. They could even get weather updates through the glasses.
They'll be on the market later this year, and they will be pricey, about $1,000, but Travers says the hope is to eventually have them for sale for under $500.
