It is also expected to have a wide range of capabilities, including displaying weather information to the field of view of the user.

STUFFING AMAZON'S ALEXA into a pair of glasses it a bit of a jump form popping the virtual assistant into a speaker, but that's what smart glasses maker Vuzix has done.

Voice assistants and augmented-reality products will be highlighted at next week's CES consumer electronics show.

The addition of Alexa to different makes of Windows 10-based computers is particularly interesting in that Amazon and Microsoft were already working together to allow Alexa and Microsoft's Cortana assistant technology work together, with a specific focus on Windows 10 device.

Travers said his company hopes to ship the AR glasses sometime during the second quarter of 2018 for around $1,000. While there's no definite arrival date just yet, the company says current owners can expect a free firmware update to deliver Alexa controls in "early 2018". This would make it possible for wearers to keep track of stock prices and sports scores using the spectacles.

Many Windows PCs going on sale this year will make use of Intel's Smart Sound processor, which is created to manage voice commands and high-fidelity audio for clearer feedback. Over the past 50 years, we've built more than 30 million cars and trucks in North America, where we operate 14 manufacturing plants (10 in the U.S.) and directly employ more than 44,000 people (more than 34,000 in the U.S.). The Vuzix Blade AR glasses were showcased this week at CES. And so here we are, with more news of Amazon and partners integrating Alexa into every product that might come to mind - glasses, cars, mirrors, microwave ovens, mobile accessories, computers and many others.

In the future, however, Dobbs thinks Amazon's first-to-market advantage will fade and the gap between the Echo and Google Home will close.
