Humane, a startup founded by former Apple employees, is set to launch its highly anticipated wearable device, the AI Pin, on November 9. This small device, which can be attached to the lapel of a jacket or dress, is powered by artificial intelligence and aims to revolutionize the way we communicate and perform daily tasks without the need for a traditional smartphone.
During a TED talk, Humane co-founder Imran Chaudhri revealed some details about the AI Pin, including its ability to magnetically adhere to clothing and use AI technology to activate functions such as making calls, translating conversations, and providing nutritional information about products.
The device also boasts a “trust light” feature that signals when the camera, microphone, or other sensors are recording data, providing users with greater transparency and control over their privacy.
Despite many of its specifications remaining unknown, the AI Pin has already garnered significant attention and was recognized as one of the “Best Inventions of 2023” by Time magazine, alongside other innovative technology products.
However, Humane faces fierce competition in the market for AI-powered wearable devices, with the Rewind Pendant offering similar capabilities such as capturing and transcribing real-world conversations, storing data locally, and providing a range of useful functionalities.
With the official presentation of the AI Pin just around the corner, the anticipation and excitement surrounding the device continue to grow, as it aims to challenge the dominance of traditional smartphones and usher in a new era of communication and productivity.
