Amazon is reportedly planning to make a pair of smart glasses that transmit audio to your eardrum via the bones in your face.

The internet tech giant has a team currently developing the product, which could hit the shelves as soon as the end of the year, the Financial Times reports.

The glasses would reportedly look like a regular pair of reading spectacles – but they would allow the wearer to address virtual assistant Alexa and hear her replies via bone-conduction technology.

This means that audio vibrations would travel directly to the wearer’s inner ear via their jaw and cheekbones, cutting out the need for earphones.

The technology has been in use to help those with hearing loss for decades, but it is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to headphones in the music and audio industries.

According to the Financial Times, the glasses would also be able to connect wirelessly to a user’s smartphone.

They are not expected to offer features such as an on-board camera, so should avoid issues like privacy concerns and poor battery life that plagued rival Google’s offering, Google Glass.

It is thought the glasses will be launched alongside updates to Amazon’s existing Echo devices as well as a new smart home security system.
