Introduction

Smartphones have become an essential part of our lives, but they can also be a distraction. Humane, a company founded by former Apple executives, aims to change that with their Ai Pin.

What is the Ai Pin?

The Ai Pin is a wearable AI assistant that attaches to your clothing. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and features a built-in SIM card.

Features

  • Ask questions and get answers
  • Play music
  • Call and text people
  • Take photos and videos
  • Real-time translation in over 50 languages

How it Works

The Ai Pin uses GPT-4 technology to process inputs locally. You can activate it through voice, touch, or gesture commands.

Demo Impressions

While the Ai Pin didn’t blow my mind, it worked well. The voice commands were responsive, and the laser projector was a cool way to interact with settings. The camera’s ability to scan and describe objects was impressive.

Limitations

  • It’s expensive at $699.
  • It takes time to answer questions.
  • It’s not a complete replacement for a smartphone.

Conclusion

The Ai Pin is a promising proof of concept for a future where we rely less on smartphones. However, in its current form, it’s not a must-have for most people.
