Humane AI Pin from Top-Secret Tech Startup Generates Industry Interest

Since Humane announced its wearable new device Ai Pin earlier this week, it has generated tremendous interest in the industry. The hardware startup that works on secretive AI-powered devices in hidden mode annouced this first in April at a TED Talk. This time, the company has said it is “a new type of standalone device with a software platform that harnesses the power of AI to enable innovative personal computing experiences.”

In a press release Friday, a single teaser image of the device was revealed with multi-color lights. However, it doesn’t say much about the product.

Humane is founded by a team that worked at Apple doing design and engineering before they turned entrepreneurs. Hence, it is being touted that the device will have a revolutionary and sleek form factor. It is likely to be packed with powerful performance so that it can make sense of real-time contextual information.

Some sources have said that the pin could be a smartphone alternative going by the functions it can perform. Others suggest it would enable users to use a phone-like device without the need to stare at a screen.

A report in Evening Standard said that this device possibly aims to “sever our dependence on smartphones” as it is likely to use contextually aware AI. Reports such as one in Interesting Engineering said that Chaudhari spoke of a ‘Disappearing Computer’ while speaking of the pin. However, Daniel Piper in Creative Bloq said that the device might not be the ‘iPhone killer’ as is being doubted by some.

Vice President of Business Development of Qualcomm Technologies Dev Singh went on to say that Humane’s Ai Pin will deliver a superior AI experience and feature an assortment of “on-device AI capabilities”.

People can join the waitlist on the company’s website to sign up for the device.
