In a move that could revolutionize the way we interact with technology, Humane, an AI company founded by ex-Apple engineers, has unveiled the AI Pin, a screenless wearable device powered by OpenAI’s GPT-4 and Microsoft AI models. The AI Pin is designed to replace the smartphone, offering a more seamless and intuitive way to access information, communicate, and control our digital lives.
The AI Pin is a small, square device that can be pinned onto clothing or other surfaces. It features an ultrawide camera, light and depth detectors, and a laser projector. The laser projector can be used to display icons and text on the user’s palm, creating a virtual interface that can be manipulated with touch gestures.
The AI Pin is activated by voice, touch, gesture, or the laser ink display. Once activated, the AI Pin can be used to perform a variety of tasks, including:
- Making and receiving calls
- Sending and receiving text messages
- Taking photos and videos
- Accessing information and apps
- Controlling smart home devices
The AI Pin is powered by OpenAI’s GPT-4 and Microsoft’s AI models, which give it the ability to understand natural language and respond to user requests in a comprehensive and informative way. The AI Pin can also learn and adapt to the user’s individual needs and preferences.
“The AI Pin is the first step in a new era of computing,” said Imran Chaudhri, co-founder of Humane. “We believe that the future of computing is not about screens and apps, but about AI-powered devices that can seamlessly integrate into our lives.”
The AI Pin is priced at $699 and is available for preorder starting November 16. The device is expected to ship in early 2024.
