We've built a way to answer those questions: The GearBrain - a compatibility checker designed for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, displaying every smart device that works with either of the leading smart speaker assistants. That honor will go to a company called Vuzix.

Vuzix will release these AR glasses in the second quarter of this year for about $1000. The Vuzix stock (VUZI) jumped on the reveal of the Vuzix Blade, mostly because of the Alexa integration. In an interview with the outlet, Vuzix CEO Paul Travers said you can issue voice commands to Alexa and have information displayed on your field of view, so long as you have an Amazon account.
