Alexa To Power AR Smart Glasses

First Amazon Alexa-Enabled Digital Glasses to Be Shown at CES

The company will add the feature to additional models in 2019.

Voice has been a challenge for carmakers; Alexa could change that. Toyota announced the news at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Alexa is Amazon's cloud-based voice service and we are excited to announce the Vuzix Blade will be Alexa-enabled so you can talk to Amazon Alexa on your Smart Sunglasses. Amazon is already dominating the headlines with a bevy of announcements - the show doesn't even officially kick off until Tuesday - while Google's marketing material is all over the city. The latest development is a lightweight solution of the AVS Device SDK that the company launched a year ago to let OEMs start integrating Alexa into their Bluetooth-supported connected devices.

To show enthusiasm of the latest move, Zack Hicks, senior vice president Toyota Motor North America and CEO Toyota Connected, said in a statement, "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". But it is interesting to see how Alexa would get into this same nascent space. As an example, drivers could tell Alexa to turn on the living room lights while the owner is pulling into the garage.

But Toyota will also allow a motorist to use the system from home.
