Ina Fried, reporting for Axios:
Ex-Apple employee Imran Chaudhri gave TED attendees on Thursday an
early glimpse of the AI-powered wearable that his startup, Humane,
has been developing. [...]
The screenless device, which does not require a nearby cell phone
to work, uses a combination of voice and gestures for input and
can display information by projecting it onto nearby objects.
Details: In his TED talk, Chaudhri showed the wearable, which sat
in his jacket pocket, translating his own voice into French.
He also answered a phone call from his wife with the call
information appearing as a green image projected onto his hand.
“This is good AI in action,” he said, promising more details
would be released in the coming months.
The device — which seemingly doesn’t yet have an announced name? — looks about 2 inches wide and 1 inch high, and is worn on your chest like a Star Trek communicator badge. Here’s an image of the phone call information projected onto Chaudhri’s hand. Hope the whole demo is released on video soon.
Update: Actually, now that I look at the video clips that are available, I think the device is quite a bit bigger, and Chaudhri has it peeking out of a pocket on his jacket? Unclear.
