Since I first learned about Humane towards the end of 2019, I've been excited about what they're building, and inspired by their values and mission to reduce phone addition and make technology more human. I decided to imagine some applications for the technology that excited me most, to demonstrate how a wearable projector could work with experiences we're familiar with on our phones and watches today. Below are a few of these explorations, created prior to the official unveiling of the Humane Ai Pin in November 2023.

What if maps could be more personal, providing just the right level of guidance by seeing what you see? My friend Zane Liu and I explored how the Ai Pin could help you get to your destination with less friction than any modern solution available.
Checking in to an Airbnb
How Humane's device might help you check in to an Airbnb by providing directions to the location, the necessary information to enter the property, and a personalized welcome message.
Riding public transit
Imagining how Humane's device could present relevant transit information when you're waiting to board, and help you check the balance of your payment card prior to getting on.
Making smarter dietary choices
Exploring how Humane's device could help you make healthier, more thoughtful dietary choices, or guide you towards items you may enjoy based on your preferences.
Assisting you through the process of riding in an Uber
How could the Humane device alert you with time sensitive information about your Uber, and provide updates on your ride while you're in transit?
