November 9, 2023: In a significant move in wearable technology, Humane is set to introduce its latest innovation, the AI Pin, which integrates advanced features with OpenAI’s capabilities, retailing at $699.
Ahead of its official unveiling this Thursday, detailed information has emerged about this device, which resembles a screenless wearable smartphone, complete with a monthly subscription fee of $24 and running on a network powered by T-Mobile.
The AI Pin is designed to attach magnetically to clothing, doubling as a battery pack to allow easy power swaps throughout the day.
Equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the Pin boasts a camera and sensors to record its surroundings, a unique “personic speaker,” and Bluetooth connectivity for external audio devices.
Interaction with the AI Pin diverges from traditional devices, focusing on voice commands and a green laser projector that displays information on your hand.
Additionally, gestures and a touchpad provide input methods, with manual activation ensuring privacy and a “Trust Light” indicating active recording.
The monthly subscription offers a phone number, cellular data, cloud storage, and unlimited AI queries.
While Humane promotes the AI Pin as a standalone device, it requires the Humane.center platform for setup and content management, though it’s unclear if this is a web-based or mobile application.
The Cosmos operating system eschews typical apps for a seamless AI-integrated system, rumored to be powered by GPT-4, providing features like personalized message writing, email summarization, language translation, and nutritional information.
The AI Pin also includes an AI DJ from Tidal and AI-driven photography features.
With the official announcement imminent, questions remain regarding the AI Pin’s functionality, release date, and market viability for a screenless smartphone alternative.
