Amazon Working On 'Smart Glasses'
Smart devices and companies are getting smarter.
Financial Times reports that Amazon.com Inc is working on its first wearable device – a pair of ‘smart glasses’.
The device, designed like a regular pair of spectacles, will allow Amazon’s digital assistant Alexa to be summoned anytime at all places, the report said, citing familiar sources.
There would be a bone-conduction audio system in the device to allow the wearer to hear Alexa without inserting headphones into his or her ears, according to the report.
Reports suggest the glasses would also be able to connect wirelessly to a user's smartphone.
Amazon was not immediately available to comment on the report outside regular business hours, according to Reuters.
Earlier this year, Alphabet Inc re-introduced its own wearable glass headset, Google Glass, after discontinuing its production last year.
