The Company has won Consumer Electronics Show (or CES) awards for innovation for the years 2005 to 2018 and several wireless technology innovation awards among others.

Soon the voice assistant Amazon Alexa will appear on thousands of computers under control of operating system Windows 10. The Company's products include personal display and wearable computing devices that offer users a portable high-quality viewing experience, provide solutions for mobility, wearable displays and virtual and augmented reality.

Talking with Bloomberg, Vuzix confirmed that its pair of AR glasses will be the first with Amazon's Alexa voice assistant integration. "This is the beginnings of leaving your phone in your pocket", said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix.

The service will also enable new features in the cars themselves, such the ability to start the engine remotely or lock the auto doors, by giving a command through another Alexa device in the home or elsewhere.

We'll see Vuzix's AR glasses with Alexa support before the summer of 2018, at a price point around $1,000 United States dollars. The latest development is a lightweight solution of the AVS Device SDK that the company launched previous year to let OEMs start integrating Alexa into their Bluetooth-supported connected devices.

As with HP, the Pavilion Wave will be the first to come designed specifically with offerings for voice interactions via Amazon Alexa. Now, the news is already official and sources are saying that Amazon Alexa is now going to make it's debuted on Windows 10 PCs and will sit alongside Microsoft's preloaded Cortana assistant. Google tried to commercialize this technology way back in 2012. However, with the advent of smart home devices, Cortana's greatest weakness proved to be its lack of smart home controls.
