Smart Glasses?

Amazon seems to be making a competitor to Google’s Assistant and Siri through wearing glasses and using a microphone as a means of communication.

The glasses would let you take Alexa anywhere and they will be tethered to your phone. These will not be including a camera which seemed to be the issue with the efforts of Google Glass that wasn’t able to break into the market. This would also mean battery life could be massively reduced, as well as weighing less.

There would also be no screen which would take a lot of time out of the development stage – this could be an interesting development and may push wearables for communication back into a more public place.

The eyeglasses and security products are supposedly coming by the end of the year, presumably in time for Christmas.
