Amazon's Alexa is coming to Toyota and Lexus cars

Vuzix Making Alexa-Enabled Smart Glasses, to Debut at CES 2018

It is unclear which models specifically will get it, but Entune 3.0 first came to the fold previous year via the 2018 Toyota Camry.

While the smart glasses can react to voice commands and serve up all manner of information including navigation directions, they can also assist field engineers by providing hands-free instructions for jobs or help identify what may be wrong with a faulty circuit board, for example. The device is created to present wearers with pertinent information directly in their field of view. Amazon says that it is "excited about the potential of the glasses and the ability to bring Alexa to customers in a new way". The Vuzix Blade AR glasses were showcased this week at CES.

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.

A new initiative announced in the framework of the exhibition electronics CES 2018, taking place in Las Vegas (NV, USA). So for those who do not have an account yet but are already planning to purchase the smart glasses, there is still time.

Today Vuzix released is latest video on the Vuzix Blade™ AR Smart Glasses running Alexa which can be seen on the Vuzix YouTube channel. However, the Cupertino giant is not expected to release its high-tech spectacles until 2020. Amazon has confirmed the new gadgets and placed special emphasis on how this will be the first smart glasses with Alexa.

Interestingly, the announcement came from Panasonic, the first company off the blocks to partner with Amazon and it said the feature can function even if there is no internet connectivity.

With Alexa's entry to Windows 10 devices, the digital assistant now poses a greater threat to Siri and Google Assistant. We don't know if Amazon will ever launch its own pair of Alexa-enabled smart glasses, but this is a good start anyway.
