Unlike most previous smartglasses, such as the ill-fated Google Glass experiment and Snapchat's Spectacles, the Amazon glasses won't feature a camera in any form, bypassing the privacy concerns that have plagued the form-factor in the past.

Amazon first entered the smart home speaker scene two years ago with its original Echo device; it now also sells different models like the $49.99 Echo Dot, which accounts for more than 50 percent of Echo products in the wild, CIRP noted.

With Amazon's smart assistant Alexa built in, the smart glasses are tipped to not need earphones or regular speakers, instead, will utilise bone-conduction technology allowing users to hear Alexa's voice.

According to a report by the Financial Times, the glasses could be revealed at a product launch event expected to be held soon alongside a home security camera, created to tie in with its Echo Show video screen.

"Home and Echo customers use the devices at least once in a day".

The new Ninety7 DOX is a portable battery for the 2nd Generation Amazon Echo Dot, created to provide rechargeable, cord-free mobility at home or on-the-go.

It can also be used to control other household activities such as accessing security systems, controlling openings and lights or any other home appliances. It also has the added benefit of making Google's smart speaker look even more like a little Dalek.

LOFT for the Google Home provides a battery pack that let's you unplug and take Google anywhere you choose. After the VAUX, a clever battery-powered speaker dock for the Amazon Echo Dot comes LOFT, a way to turn Google Home into a portable assistant.

It added that the glasses could be released before the end of the year.
