seattle - Amazon also works on smart glasses, similar to Google Glass and the HoloLens from Microsoft. The glasses should get the smart help Alexa. In addition, Amazon wants to develop a security camera that can be linked to the Echo devices. That reports the Financial Times based on sources around the company.
In any case, one of the two products should come on the market before the end of the year, and possibly both. Amazon himself does not want to say anything about it.
The spectacles would mean that Amazon once again enters a new market, that of wearables. It must solve a business problem. Amazon does not have smartphones to set up Alexa. Competitors like Apple (Siri) and Google (Assistant) do. That means that Amazon has to look for other ways to bring Alexa to the man.
