Amazon Developing its Answer to Google Glass

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Amazon’s developing a pair of smart-glasses that would allow users to tap the company’s virtual assistant Alexa outside the home.

The Financial Times reports that the device would pair up with a smart phone and has what’s called a ‘bone conduction audio system’, meaning the user can hear Alexa without earphones. It would be Amazon’s first wearable device, while entering a tough market, as Google Glass never took off commercially, with alphabet focusing on business applications.

Amazon’s Echo smart system speaker featuring Alexa has been a smash hit.
