Echo Frames: Amazon's take on of "Google Glass"


Recommended Posts

Well, while browsing Amazon today, I found this to be interesting and the first I'd heard of it.


Apparently, Amazon is making an Alexa-connected set of eye glasses.  IMHO,this is very much similar to Google's attempt at Google Glass, where they had an eye-piece with an embedded display and camera... except this is less invasive.  Sure, there's the ever present microphone but it doesn't have camera.

I am a privacy advocate, so these aren't for me, but I'm curious what you guys think about these, or if you've heard of them before.  I wouldn't mind something like this if it was just connected directly to my smartphone, but to be connected to Alexa and, honestly, I don't know if we can really trust if Amazon is listening to you or not all of the time when you cut off the mic, it's a hard pass for me.  It's still neat to see the innovation though.
