Humane Pins Appear at Paris Fashion Week


Coperni designers Sebastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant held their fashion week outing in a vast underground sound research centre in the heart of Paris, showcasing sporty ultra-modern styles with tech devices, the Humane Ai Pin, fastened to lapels. [...]

Paris Fashion Week runs until Oct. 3 and features brands including Chanel, Hermes and LVMH-owned Louis Vuitton.

Not one whit of information describing what the Humane pins actually do. We do see, though, that they look like toy iPhones that might come in a McDonald’s Happy Meal. Debuting at this fashion show gives me strong solid-gold Apple Watch Edition vibes from 2015 — except that Apple told us what Apple Watch actually did, and offered it in affordable aluminum models.

I don’t get it. Maybe they’ll sell them for $5,000 a pop and make them hard to obtain?
