Vuzix Making Alexa-Enabled Smart Glasses, to Debut at CES 2018

The trouble is that Amazon (and Google) has first-party Alexa (and Google Assistant) products that are quite good.

Amazon's Alexa smart assistant was the quiet star of the show at last year's CES.

Google said on Monday its voice-controlled virtual assistant will show up this year in new tablet-like devices designed by LG Electronics Inc and Sony Corp as the technology company seeks to challenge Amazon's dominance in a fledgling market.

The company has experimented with developing a version of Google Home with a screen, Rishi Chandra, vice president of the division, told Reuters in August.

Google launched into CES with a bang, and their presence is surely not to be missed. This was evident not only in whole-home controls but in the vast number of smart doorlocks/doorbells, thermostats, and camera/surveillance systems on display. The Smart Display has builtin Google Assistant to get things done. It is estimated Google Home will capture 25 percent of the smart speaker market in 2018, while Amazon's Echo will command a 68 percent. The 8-inch model is priced at $199 while the 10-inch will retail at $249 when it goes on sale in early summer.

On the basic technology level, Alexa has, for competition, Apple's Siri, Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana and Samsung's Bixby. The ThinQ View has stereo speakers, like the JBL model above, and all the features that come with Google Assistant.

Because the Smart Display runs Google Assistant, it can do a lot more. Did you expect this from Lenovo for this year? We have a feeling more OEMs will follow.

"However, as we increasingly engage with more virtual assistants in our home, at work, in the vehicle - and everything in between - a cognitive arbitrator will ultimately be needed to connect the diverse virtual assistants, third-party services and content, and intelligent agents through an interoperable interface".
