With help from Google Glass founder Babak Parviz, Amazon has set to work on its first wearable device. With help from Google Glass founder Babak Parviz, whom Amazon hired in 2014, the company is developing smart glasses equipped with the Alexa voice assistant, reports the Financial Times.
The glasses will reportedly look pretty normal, without a visible screen or camera draining the battery as with Google Glass. Amazon's glasses, however, will let users give Alexa a command from anywhere at any time, rather than when in range of Amazon's Echo devices, without having to open the smartphone app, reports Engadget. Users will hear from Alexa through bone-conduction technology, so there will be no need for speakers or earphones.
