• Amazon has apparently been developing their own take on "smart" glasses. So far the e-commerce and web services giant has enjoyed big successes with their Alexa-laden products, but for the most part their history of hardware has been littered with little-loved commodity style products, designed to reduce the distance between you and an Amazon order. Smart glasses and wearable tech in general has been an incredibly tricky puzzle (for technological and cultural reasons) that few companies have managed to even begin to solve. We're not optimistic that Amazon will be able to deliver something that provides enough value with minimal creep factor to be a big success, but they have almost as much bet-making money as any company could want.
