In order to improve the customer experience, businesses are increasingly incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) into their products, expanding the use of AI beyond chatbots. The technology has advanced significantly over the years, with corporations now employing AI coaches in smartwatches in addition to leveraging AI for customer care.
With support from Microsoft and ChatGPT developer OpenAI, Humane, a firm formed by two former Apple workers, has unveiled a new product that aims to destroy Apple’s largest revenue generator: the smartphone.
The Humane AI Pin
The AI Pin, a two-part wearable consisting of a small, square-shaped device and a battery pack, is Humane’s first consumer product. It can attach magnetically to surfaces or your clothing.
It costs $699 (about ₹58,210), and users must further pay a $24 (roughly ₹2,000) monthly subscription fee, which provides them with a Humane subscription, a phone number, and mobile data.

The AI Pin operates on the company’s Cosmos operating system, which is intended to intelligently route your questions to the appropriate tools without requiring you to download several applications. It is powered by an unidentified Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset.
Information can be holographically projected onto your palm or other surfaces using the green laser projector included with the AI Pin. It has a built-in camera that can identify things, analyze food to give you nutritional data, and do a lot more.
You can use gestures in front of the camera and voice controls to operate the device. It doesn’t have a word to wake it up like voice assistants do; instead, you have to manually press a button to turn it on.
In essence, the AI Pin is the incorporation of ChatGPT-like AI chatbots into a device, enabling them to make calls, send messages, and perform other functions.
Additionally, the device can currently translate text in real time, respond to inquiries, summarize emails, give nutritional data about the food you’re eating, and more. According to reports, the corporation intends to add other functions including shopping and navigation.
