Voice controlled systems have become such a vital asset to one's home that one company is creating a pair of glasses, dubbed the Vuzix Blade, that enables wearers to access Amazon's Alexa when they're on the go.
Showcased at this year's CES, these glasses enable one to connect to the digital assistant without having to lift a finger. In addition, these glasses are equipped with augmented reality technology, which alters the lenses to display information. After the user says the "Hey Alexa" prompt, a green circle will appear, informing the wearer that they're connected. Following this, users can ask the device for information regarding weather, traffic updates, directions and more.
The glasses are expected to be released in 2018.
