Alexa-Linked AR Glasses Let Wearers Access The Voice Assistant Anywhere

Toyota Alexa integration is coming to dashboards in 2018

Toyota announced at CES this year that the carmaker will be offering support for Amazon Alexa within its vehicles - no additional hardware required.

The addition of Alexa to different makes of Windows 10-based computers is particularly interesting in that Amazon and Microsoft were already working together to allow Alexa and Microsoft's Cortana assistant technology work together, with a specific focus on Windows 10 device. Alexa was also able to put directions to the airport in my line of sight - arguably the most practical use case for augmented reality glasses right now. The Company has won Consumer Electronics Show (or CES) awards for innovation for the years 2005 to 2018 and several wireless technology innovation awards among others.

Alexa, an intelligent personal assistant developed by Amazon will be hitting Windows 10 PCs later this year.

In a statement, Toyota Connected CEO Zack Hicks said "Voice services are rapidly becoming more popular and through our integration with Amazon Alexa, Toyota and Lexus customers will soon be able to easily speak to Alexa in their cars while on-the-go".

Toyota, a company that habitually spars with Volkswagen for the title of world's largest automaker, is among the few that stubbornly refuse to offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto in any of its products.

"Vuzix continues to lead the way in wearable smart glasses innovation and it should come as no surprise that the Vuzix Blade AR Smart Sunglasses will be the first pair of smart glasses to be Alexa-Enabled". With a simple voice command a user can access an array of information, such as weather, news or sports scores, play games and plug into thousands of "skills", the Alexa version of a smartphone app.

Aside from its smart home connectivity, Alexa provides a more reliable natural language processing.
