Humane’s AI Pin Costs $699 and Requires a $24/Month Subscription

David Pierce at The Verge:

Humane has been teasing its first device, the AI Pin, for most of this year. It’s scheduled to launch the Pin on Thursday, but The Verge has obtained documents detailing practically everything about the device ahead of its official launch. What they show is that Humane, the company noisily promoting a world after smartphones, is about to launch what amounts to a $699 wearable smartphone without a screen that has a $24 a month subscription fee, and which runs on a Humane-branded version of T-Mobile’s network with access to AI models from Microsoft and OpenAI.

I sincerely hope I’m wrong, but this sounds like the Quibi of AI gadgets.
