Wearable ‘Ai Pin’ launched by Humane, backed by ex-Apple execs and Microsoft

Silicon Valley startup Humane has released a $699 device called the Ai Pin, which brings advanced artificial intelligence to wearable technology. The device, designed to be worn on clothing, allows users to interact with a virtual assistant powered by OpenAI and Microsoft’s cloud computing power. It utilizes a laser projection system to display text and monochromatic images on the user’s hand.

Humane, founded by former Apple veterans, is among the many companies in Silicon Valley seeking to develop the next generation of consumer devices. However, the company has chosen to steer clear of mixed-reality headsets, unlike competitors such as Apple and Meta Platforms. Humane’s co-founder and President, Imran Chaudhri, emphasized during a demonstration of the Ai Pin that “the future is not on your face.”

Instead, Humane offers a device that relies heavily on artificial intelligence and lacks a traditional screen. The Pin’s virtual assistant sets itself apart by composing messages in the user’s tone of voice and providing a “Catch Me Up” feature to summarize cluttered email inboxes. Additionally, the Pin includes a camera capable of taking pictures and using computer vision to analyze objects like food, providing users with nutritional information.

Chaudhri stated, “Ai Pin is the embodiment of our vision to integrate AI into the fabric of daily life, enhancing our capabilities without overshadowing our humanity.”

The Ai Pin will be available in the United States starting from November 16. Humane has secured $241 million in funding from Microsoft, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and other investors.
