Toyota Bringing Amazon Alexa to Its Cars

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

In an interview with the outlet, Vuzix CEO Paul Travers said you can issue voice commands to Alexa and have information displayed on your field of view, so long as you have an Amazon account.

While tech heads and people with nothing to hide may welcome the convenience of Amazon's digital helper being present in what will most definitely continue to be some of the most common cars on the road, more privacy-conscious and tin-foil-hatted drivers will undoubtedly balk at the idea of every new Corolla having an unmutable, direct line to the largest internet corporation in the world.

Firstly, the crush of a CES evening show is never the best place to test out a voice assistant: you need a strong connection to make her receptive to your requests. However, with the advent of smart home devices, Cortana's greatest weakness proved to be its lack of smart home controls.

The Blade has one advantage over your audio-only Echo speaker, however. Even so, it can still generate weather reports, set reminders, offer directions and generate news headlines. The mixed reception has taught startups and manufacturers what pitfalls to avoid and how to make a smart glasses product that has the potential to be both mainstream and useful for productivity fans.

Which computers will support Alexa?

The newly launched Swift 7 and Spin notebooks will come with Alexa pre-loaded like Cortana, while the remaining entries will receive Alexa via Acer Care Centre by the mid of 2018.

Once Alexa is enabled, just ask her to do things like adjust your smart home's temperature so it's comfortable when you get there, add milk to your shopping list on your way to the store, or listen to your audiobook from Audible.
