Toyota, Lexus will add Amazon Alexa to some models in 2018

He claims that Vuzix's Alexa integration is part of an Amazon program that allows third-party hardware manufacturers to put the digital assistant into their products.

Of course, people won't be talking about the condition of relations between Alexa and Cortana almost as much as they will be talking about voice-activated toilets. The latest development is a lightweight solution of the AVS Device SDK that the company launched previous year to let OEMs start integrating Alexa into their Bluetooth-supported connected devices.

And with the recent reveal of the Alexa Mobile Accessory Kit, Amazon is clearly aiming to get Alexa into more wearable and portable devices beyond smartphones.

But they contain a decent amount of tech that connects to a wearer's phone and effectively provides a wearable head-up display, a built-in camera, microphone and side-mounted touchpad to make the glasses a "smart" device. We have reported about their glasses many times over the years. At CES in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Toyota announced the voice technology would be incorporated with the carmaker's infotainment systems. The Vuzix Blade Augmented Reality Smart Glasses, as the company calls it, will set interested consumers back a hefty $1,000. We'll know more about the company's new range of laptops in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for updates. Sound pricey? It is, but interestingly, Vuzix Chief Executive Officer Paul Travers has said they're looking to get the price down to $500 Dollars by 2019.

It's worth noting that Amazon and Apple aren't the first ones to bring AR glasses to the market.
