Now forget your foldable phones and holographic display and no more need to get the neck strain and eye fatigue instead start anticipating the technology that will nestle comfortably on your wrist. With this you will experience the world with your naked eyes.
In a groundbreaking update from Humane, the much-anticipated AI-powered wearable, the Humane AI Pin, is now slated to start shipping in March 2024. Addressing eager customers, the company revealed on X (formerly Twitter) that those who placed priority orders will have the privilege of receiving their innovative Ai Pins first.
Founded by former Apple visionaries Bethany Bongiorno and Imran Chaudhri, Humane envisions the smartphone, long considered the technological pinnacle, as reaching the end of its reign. Chaudhri remarked in a November press briefing that the smartphone era had plateaued, setting the stage for Humane’s revolutionary approach – a screen-less wearable device designed to replace conventional smartphones.
Now with a single flick of your finger you can see the weather report and translate languages in real time, moreover, your grocery list will be projected on your palm just like a holographic tattoo.
Priced at $699, the Humane AI Pin defies convention by forgoing a traditional screen. Instead, it relies on voice cues and a cutting-edge projector to beam relevant information directly onto the user’s hand. Promising a new paradigm in user experience, the founders emphasize privacy and contextual intelligence, boasting the device’s ability to quickly understand user needs and connect them to the right AI experience or service instantly.
The device’s core functionality is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon processor and Qualcomm AI Engine, running on the innovative Cosmos OS software. Notably, the Humane AI Pin has secured partnerships with tech giants OpenAI, Microsoft, and Tidal, providing users with access to some of the world’s most powerful AI models and platforms.
Humane has adopted a unique approach to shipping, prioritizing those who placed early orders, with shipments set to commence in March. The remaining orders will follow suit, processed in the order they were received. Engadget has reached out to the company for more specific details on the shipping timeline.
Adding a personal touch to the news, Humane highlights the user-centric design philosophy that sets the AI Pin apart. The device not only represents a technological leap but also signifies a new way of thinking and a fresh sense of opportunity in the rapidly evolving world of wearable technology.
For those eager to get their hands on this cutting-edge device, pre-orders are available on Humane’s website. The Eclipse variant, priced at $699, offers a matte black on black aesthetic, while the Lunar and Equinox colorways, polished chrome on white and black respectively, are available for $799. Additionally, buyers are required to subscribe to a $24 monthly plan for cellular data, delivered through Humane’s MVNO on T-Mobile’s network.
The positive aspects of this technology is that you will be protected from the data hungry app and the pin that will respect your boundaries and don’t sell your information to anyone and keep it safe and sound. It learns your habits and serves you according to your needs, making your life more convenient.
But this technology is for those who have deep pockets and have a strong inclination towards technology. Moreover you need to be patient to work with AI. As Pin might take time in learning and understanding your whispers.
