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.

The Vuzix Blade leverages our intellectual property patent portfolio and leadership position in the area of optics, head mounted displays and smart glasses, which allows Vuzix to bring to market the world's smallest and sleekest pair of AR smart glasses ever developed.

"As Vuzix' next earnest step into consumer-grade augmented reality, the Vuzix Blade AR glasses will undoubtedly blaze the trail toward logical, approachable AR for everyone, with Amazon's Alexa digital assistant steering the wheel".

Executives from Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant will be seeking new partners and other big technology companies, including Apple and Facebook Inc.'s Oculus division, will be at the show behind the scenes as they ramp up their virtual-reality and augmented-reality products.

Amazon's Alexa virtually dominates the voice-based AI space with a 82% market share with Google Home way behind at 18%. So for those who do not have an account yet but are already planning to purchase the smart glasses, there is still time. Vuzix CEO Paul Travers says that the price will be reduced to $500 by 2019. The $1,000 AR glasses will be released later this year aimed at enterprise users and early adopters.

The launch of the Alexa-enabled AR glasses would surely be a game changer in the industry.

As with HP, the Pavilion Wave will be the first to come designed specifically with offerings for voice interactions via Amazon Alexa.
