San Francisco-based startup Humane has unveiled its first product, the AI Pin, a gadget that promises to revolutionize wearable technology. This quirky pin, attachable to your shirt, packs AI features to offer a unique user experience.

Features and Functionality

  • Enhanced Photography and Communication: The AI Pin is capable of taking 13 MP photos and sending texts. It comes with an AI virtual assistant powered by Microsoft and OpenAI tech. Moreover the device allows you to speak to it naturally, and its AI Mic supercharges search, quickly finding what you’re looking for.
  • Personalized Messaging: The AI-powered messaging feature can craft messages in your tone of voice, and a Catch Me Up function sorts through inbox.
  • AI-Enhanced Music: The AI Pin also offers AI-powered music experiences and an AI-powered photographer helps you capture and recall important memories.
  • Language Interpretation and Nutritional Support: The AI Pin can act as your foreign language interpreter and even support your nutrition goals by identifying food using computer vision.

Operating System and User Interface

The AI Pin runs on Cosmos, Humane’s OS “for the AI era”, which has no apps but blends intelligent technologies with intuitive interaction and advanced security. The device quickly understands what you need and then connects you to the right AI experience or service instantly.

Activation and Privacy

The AI Pin is not always listening. To activate it, you need to tap and drag on its touchpad. Further a “Trust Light” will blink to let you and everyone around you know that the device is collecting data.

Design and Specifications

The AI Pin comes in three colors – Eclipse, Equinox, and Lunar. It weighs 34g and has a “battery booster” accessory. Furthermore multiple boosters can be hot swapped as they connect magnetically to the AI Pin and wirelessly charge it.

Subscription Services and Availability

The device operates using an undisclosed Snapdragon SoC. It costs $699 upfront for the device itself and two battery boosters, plus a $24 per month subscription that gives it a phone number and data coverage. The AI Pin will ship early next year and pre-orders start on November 16.

The AI Pin is a bold step into the future of wearable technology. With its unique features and capabilities, it promises to offer a new way of interacting with technology. The extent to which it becomes “all the rage” remains to be seen, but it’s undeniably an exciting development in the tech world.
