Considering Alexa has made its way into just about every Internet-connected product, it was only a matter of time before the digital butler arrived in smart glasses.

If developers create compelling apps that blend Alexa’s capabilities and augmented reality, the Blade AR glasses could have some promising potential.

Popular dash-cam company Nextbase have just launched the DUO, said to be the UK’s first dash-cam which comes with both a camera for the front and rear of your car. While the front records in 720P HD, the rear camera lens comes with a 50m zoom. The screen even playbacks the synchronised footage at the same time. If you do find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to supply footage to an insurance company, you can rest assured the camera will have recorded the whole incident – it comes with g-sensor technology that will recognise an accident and store footage safely for insurance purposes. While you’ll need to invest in a Micro SD card for it, everything else comes with the camera – including the window mount and power cable. It gives a good, clear view and is worth the money.
