If it seems like Amazon is putting Alexa into absolutely everything, the e-commerce giant may feel like it has to in order to remain the clear No. 1 in the virtual assistant market.

Vuzix will release these AR glasses in the second quarter of this year for about $1000. Current users won't be missing out on Alexa, as they have promised that Alexa will be made available on select devices through updates. Needless to say that Alexa will instantly eclipse native assistant Cortana with its humungous count of skills. "The feedback has been incredibly positive and is resulting in a significant inflow of business and strategic partnership opportunities with some leading organizations from around the globe", said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix.

The augmented reality glasses with Alexa from Vuzix is expected to be unveiled for a quick experience during the CES 2018.

Over the weekend, Bloomberg learned that Rochester, New York-based company Vuzix is unveiling its Alexa-enabled smart glasses at the largest consumer technology trade show this week.

African countries demand US President Trump apology over 's**tholes' slur
Durbin is part of a bipartisan group of six senators who announced Thursday the framework of a compromise on immigration. The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

Looking ahead John Scumniotales, head of products for Alexa's automobile wing, is confident that the technology can be put to far more ambitious use: "It's still really day one for us in terms of what we can do with Alexa in the vehicle".

Vuzix is in the business of smart glasses for over 20 years. Google tried to commercialize this technology way back in 2012.

But they contain a decent amount of tech that connects to a wearer's phone and effectively provides a wearable head-up display, a built-in camera, microphone and side-mounted touchpad to make the glasses a "smart" device.

Amazon hasn't said whether it will release its own branded smart glasses with Alexa, but Travers expects it to happen.
