Humane Ai Pin official launch
Humane has fully unveiled its Ai Pin: the first wearable device and software platform built to harness the full power of artificial intelligence.
The Ai Pin marks a new beginning for personal consumer technology, offering users the ability to take AI with them everywhere in an entirely new, conversational and screenless form factor. AI Pin will be available to order in the US from November 16th, starting at $699 for the complete system.
The Ai Pin was previewed at Coperni’s Paris Fashion Week show in September this year, ahead of the official launch.
The Ai Pin revolutionises our interaction with artificial intelligence. Speak to it naturally, use the intuitive touchpad, hold up objects, use gestures, or interact via the pioneering Laser Ink Display projected onto your palm. Its distinctive, screen-free interface is crafted to merge discreetly into its surroundings, all the while delivering AI's capabilities in various modes, ensuring a fluid experience.
Ai Pin is supposed to effortlessly integrate into your daily routine, and should elevate your interactions with the world around you.
Engineered for both simplicity and complexity, Ai Mic dramatically enhances search efficiency, swiftly locating and contextualising your queries. AI-powered messaging can craft messages in your tone of voice, while the Catch Me Up function sorts through the noise of your inbox. New AI-driven music experiences come to life through a partnership with TIDAL and the AI-powered photographer helps you capture and recall important memories.
With its expanding range of functions, Ai Pin also serves as a multilingual interpreter and aids in achieving nutritional objectives by recognising food through computer vision. As the device and platform continually receive updates, the scope of its capabilities correspondingly expands.
Cosmos: An all-new operating system for the AI era
Cosmos is Humane's operating system for the AI era, blending intelligent technologies with intuitive interaction and advanced security. An entirely new AI software framework, the Ai Bus, brings Ai Pin to life and removes the need to download, manage, or launch apps. Instead, it quickly understands what you need, connecting you to the right AI experience or service instantly.
Perpetual power and style
Ai Pin comes in three colour options - Eclipse, Equinox, and Lunar - and boasts a unique two-piece design, consisting of the main computer and a battery booster. These are connected magnetically and power wirelessly through clothing and apparel, enabling you to wear Ai Pin in a variety of ways. With its perpetual power system, users can hot-swap the battery booster on-the-go, ensuring uninterrupted usage and all-day battery life.
Packed with cutting-edge technology
Despite its compact size, Ai Pin is a powerhouse of new technology. It operates on a Snapdragon processor, complemented by a dedicated Qualcomm AI Engine, ensuring swift and dependable performance for AI tasks. The device is equipped with an ultra-wide RGB camera, depth sensor and motion sensors, allowing the device to see the world as you see it. A unique, personic speaker creates a bubble of sound, offering both intimacy and volume as needed, while Ai Pin can also pair with headphones via Bluetooth.
Privacy at its core
Privacy and transparency are of utmost importance with Ai Pin. The device becomes active only when the user initiates interaction and does not rely on 'wake words', guaranteeing that it is neither continuously listening nor recording. Ai Pin features a prominent Trust Light which indicates when any sensors are active, which is managed via a dedicated privacy chip. If compromised, Ai Pin will shut down and require professional service from Humane.
Centralised control with Humane.center
To manage and access your data, including photos, videos, and notes, Ai Pin connects to Humane.center. This platform serves as a central hub for your device, ensuring a streamlined interaction from setup to daily use. Upon purchasing Ai Pin, users are invited to onboard via a privacy-protected portal, allowing the device to tailor its services to individual preferences.
Humane's collaborations with Microsoft and OpenAI give Ai Pin access to some of the world's most powerful AI models and platforms and set the foundation for new capabilities to be added as the technology evolves. Ai Pin is a standalone device and does not need to be paired with a smartphone or other companion device. To provide wireless service for Ai Pin, Humane is launching its own MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) connected by its exclusive US partner, T-Mobile.
Pricing and comprehensive subscription plan
Ai Pin is available starting at $699 for the complete system. This includes the device, two battery boosters, a charge pad, a charge case, a cable and an adapter. For $24 per month, the Humane Subscription includes a dedicated cell phone number for your Ai Pin and unlimited talk, text, and data. This subscription also comes with cloud storage and full access to Humane's growing suite of Ai-powered services with no limits on the number of queries you can pose.
