  • Ninety7 intros portable battery cases for the Google Home, Amazon Echo Dot

Citing people familiar with the Seattle-based company's plans, the Financial Times writes the first product will be a pair of smart glasses that provide wearers access to Alexa from anywhere in the world.

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.

Supporting the opposite opinions, Amazon will add bone-conduction audio technology that will not require any speaker or earphone support. Amazon has released a number of devices over last few years including Echo Look Camera, tinier Echo Dot, and Echo Show integrated with the screen. This might be the biggest success for the company till date as it will be offering a package of two for its user this year.

CIRP also estimates 15 million Amazon Echo units sold across the USA, which is up from 10.7 million in March and 5.1 million this past November, according to data from CIRP. As with the VAUX, Amazon's smaller smart speaker drops into a nook on the top, with cables plugging in at the back.

"Home and Echo customers use the devices at least once in a day". "They also use them frequently for information, like asking about the weather or sports scores, as well as setting timers and alarms".

If you've ever wished to carry the Amazon Echo Dot or Google Home around with you, then a battery pack from Ninety7 could be the right up your street.

The Echo was launched in the USA in November 2014, and was slowly rolled out to the United Kingdom and Germany over the next two years. When the battery finally runs down, you drop it on the included charging base; that's powered via the same microUSB charger that Amazon includes with the Echo Dot itself.
