Amazon.com Inc. is working on its first wearable device, a pair of ‘smart glasses’, the Financial Times reported Wednesday.
The device, designed like a regular pair of spectacles, will allow Amazon’s digital assistant Alexa to be summoned anytime at all places, the report said, citing plan’s familiar sources.
There would be a bone-conduction audio system in the device to allow the wearer to hear Alexa without inserting headphones into his or her ears, according to the report.
Amazon was not immediately available to comment on the report outside regular business hours.
Earlier this year, Alphabet Inc reintroduced its own wearable glass headset, Google Glass, after discontinuing its production last year.
