Humane’s new wearable AI demo is wild #WearableWednesday
Former Apple designer Imran Chaudhri is working on a new type of computer. Humane is pitched in this TED talk as a computer beyond screens (or a “disappearing computer”). Part wearable, part VR, part AR, and part AI; it could be the future of computers. The Verge goes over some the details, they also have a healthy bit of skepticism.
The device appears to be a small black puck that slips into your breast pocket, with a camera, projector, and speaker sticking out the top. Throughout the 13-minute presentation, Chaudhri walks through a handful of use cases for Humane’s gadget
