Humane doesn’t just answer spoken questions
San Francisco, 7/3/2023
Humane, the startup founded by former Apple designers Imran Chaudhri and Bethany Bongiorno, introduced its first product, the Humane Ai Pin.
The AI-powered wearable device can be attached to clothing and acts as a personal assistant, answering spoken questions and projecting information onto the user’s hands or nearby objects and surfaces.
It can summarize email and calendar invitations, translate languages, make phone calls, and recognize objects using computer vision. Humane has also partnered with Qualcomm to use an unnamed Snapdragon series chip as the internal hardware for the Ai-Pin device.
Humane has now raised at least $230 million, including a $100 million round announced in March, from investors including Kindred Ventures, Microsoft, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and Volvo Cars Tech Fund. The company should benefit from the fast-growing global wearable technology market, which is expected to exceed $392.4 billion by 2030.
