In the competition to develop consumer devices tailored for the era of artificial intelligence, a startup established by former Apple (AAPL) executives has initiated the race.

The innovative Ai Pin, a mobile AI assistant created by San Francisco-based startup Humane, was unveiled recently. Users interact with the system through voice commands and gestures, wearing it like a lapel pin.

Despite the absence of a traditional display, the device utilizes laser projection to display text and images on the user’s palm. Moreover, it is equipped with an integrated lens capable of object recognition and memory storage for future reference.

As per a press release, Humane has partnered with Microsoft (MSFT), OpenAI, Qualcomm (QCOM), and T-Mobile (TMUS) to spearhead the upcoming wave of personal mobile computing driven by AI.

Commencement of Humane Ai Pin Directions Scheduled for This Year

Priced at \(699 with a mandatory \)24 monthly wireless subscription, the Ai Pin will be available for pre-order in the United States starting Thursday. Deliveries are slated to commence in early 2024.

The Ai Pin is powered by a dedicated Qualcomm AI Engine and Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU. Communication with the device is facilitated through “personic speech” or paired Mobile headphones. Additionally, it features a camera and multiple sensors.

Not reliant on smartphone pairing, the Ai Pin can function independently, allowing users to manage and access their data, including photos, videos, and notes, via the Humane website.

The device operates without the need for “wake words,” activating only upon user interaction to ensure it is not continuously monitoring or recording. An illuminated “trust light” signals when any sensors are activated.

Artificial Intelligence Capabilities of Ai Pin

The device offers a feature named “Catch Me Away,” which organizes and summarizes emails in your inbox. Furthermore, it includes AI-powered messaging that can mimic your voice tone in communications.

Supporting dietary objectives, the Ai Pin utilizes computer vision to recognize food items and serves as a language translator. Humane hints at the addition of new features as the software and device evolve through subsequent updates.

In collaboration with Block (SQ) subsidiary Tidal, the Ai Pin will deliver an AI-enhanced music experience.

Featuring a “perpetual power system,” users can extend their battery life throughout the day by swapping out the power pack.

Future Releases of Consumer AI Devices

Founded in 2019 by former Apple executives Imran Chaudhri and Bethany Bongiorno, Humane emerged three iterations before the ChatGPT launch sparked an AI frenzy.

While some skeptics question the Ai Pin’s potential, favoring smartphones, failed consumer devices like the Google Glass computerized eyewear, Tale Clip lifelogging camera, and Magic Leap augmented reality headset are cited as cautionary examples.

Nevertheless, prominent tech companies recognize the growing significance of consumer AI as a market segment.

Social media giant Meta Platforms (META) recently introduced the latest version of its Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses on September 27. Through Meta AI, wearers can interact with the glasses and access real-time information. Additionally, users can stream video from the glasses to Facebook and Instagram.

The new Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses, priced at $299, became available for purchase on October 17 in 15 countries, including the United States and Canada.

Reports suggest that Apple’s former chief design officer Jony Ive and OpenAI CEO Sam Altman are exploring collaboration opportunities to develop an undisclosed artificial intelligence “hardware device.”
