The Vuzix Blade Augmented Reality Smart Glasses, as the company calls it, will set interested consumers back a hefty $1,000.
Travers believes Amazon won't be content simply having Alexa integrated into a pair of third party smart glasses, after being asked if Amazon will make their own smart glasses, Travers says; "I think everyone is going to come out with glasses sooner or later" in a report according to Bloomberg. Executives from Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant are to be seeking new partners and other big technology companies, including Apple Inc and Facebook Inc's Oculus division, will be at the show behind-the-scenes as they ramp up their virtual reality and AR products. AR is a technology that superimposes digital information such as maps, text messages and more onto a person's view of the real world, while VR submerses a user into a completely different digitally created world. Amazon would generate revenue from its Alexa service, while Vuzix's smart glasses would easily appeal to the smart assistant's following. In the meantime, Vuzix has published a quick guide and overview of what to expect from the Blade Smart Glasses on their website. They could even get weather updates through the glasses.
Vuzix will release its AR glasses by the second quarter at a cost of about Dollars 1,000, CEO Paul Travers told Bloomberg.

It's good to see the smart glasses market continue after Google Glass had a rough test launch. Hence, by the time Apple releases its AR glasses, Alexa-enabled glasses could have already established a market just like what happened to the Echo series and Apple's upcoming HomePod. The eyewear is basically like the failed concept Google Glass, but an intelligent machine along for the ride.
It is touted that this is the first pair of smart glasses that will provide a large virtual screen and a lightweight build weighing around 85 grams.
