The Humane AI Pin
Humane has announced the AI Pin, the company’s first consumer device is a two-part wearable which includes a small square-shaped device and a battery pack. It can magnetically attach to your clothes or other surfaces.
It is priced at $699 (approx. ₹58,210) and users will also have to pay a monthly subscription of $24 (approx. ₹2,000), which gets them a Humane subscription, a phone number and mobile data.
The AI Pin is powered by an unspecified Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and runs on the company’s Cosmos operating system which is designed to route your queries to the right tools automatically, without asking you to download multiple applications.
The AI Pin has a green laser projector that can holographically project information on your hand or other surfaces. It is equipped with a camera that can recognize objects, look at food to provide you nutritional information and more.
To control the device, you can use voice controls and gestures in front of the camera. Unlike voice assistants, it does not have a word to wake it and you will have to manually tap on a button to activate it.
The AI Pin can basically be considered as the integration of AI chatbots like ChatGPT into a device, capable of placing calls, messaging and more.
In addition to this, the device can currently provide real-time translation, answer questions, summarise your emails, provide nutritional information about your food and more. The company reportedly plans on adding more features such as navigation and shopping.
