  • The hands-free version of the assistant has been included in the new Fire HD 10, Amazon’s latest tablet, which will go on sale on October 11 for £150 ($150).

Seattle firm Amazon is working on a device that will appear like a regular pair of specs with hidden high tech features, including sending sounds directly to your auditory system without earpieces.

Amazon is reportedly working on a wearable device that will allow users to access its Alexa voice assistant on the move.

The smart glasses will appear to be a regular pair of specs, with high tech additions discretely built in, according to a new report.

If they prove popular, they could allow the shopping firm to take on rivals Siri and Google Assistant, which are already both available in mobile voice activated form.

This is not the first time in recent days that Amazon’s plans to make Alexa more mobile have been revealed. On Tuesday, the firm  unveiled a new tablet that allows users to summon the virtual assistant with just their voice for the first time. Until now, the AI powered assistant could only be summoned on Amazon tablets and other mobile devices when a wake button was pressed or the Alexa app launched. The hands-free version of the assistant has been included in the new Fire HD 10, Amazon’s latest tablet, which will go on sale on October 11 for £150 ($150).

Reports of the development of the device were first made in an article on the Financial Times.

The yet unnamed project will see the glasses to pair with your smartphone, presumably via Bluetooth.

This will allow you to both hear and speak to the Alexa voice assistant.
