Amazons releases their smart glasses to the public
Amazon believes that we will want to start talking to our glasses in the future and will therefore release their “Echo Frames” glasses to anyone interested in them. These are a pair of smart glasses that can be fitted with the type of glass that the user wants.
It was last year that Amazon presented a pair of smart glasses and a smart ring in its experimental so-called “Day 1” program. After a selected group of users tested these during the year that has passed since then, Echo Frames will now be released as a real product. However, the smart ring Echo Loop does not seem to have attracted as much interest and therefore Amazon is now scrapping the development and launch of this.
With Amazon’s smart glasses, users will be able to ask questions to the glasses and have them answered by Amazon’s smart assistant Alexa. It is also possible to connect the glasses to both Google Assistant and Apple’s smart assistant Siri. The glasses can also notify users when they receive notifications on their mobile phones.
Amazon Echo Frames will cost $ 250 and will be released on December 10th. The desired glass in the glasses can be ordered by the user separately. Below you can check out when the Washington Post tested the Day 1 version of Echo Frames a few months ago.
