It’s Paris Fashion Week and Humane was the latest fashion tech name from designer Coperni to be included. Humane’s Ai Pin: A device we’ve so far only seen in silhouette on the company’s website or peeking out of Humane co-founder Imran Chaudhri’s chest pocket on a TED demo earlier this year — was pinned to the clothes of several Coperni models during their presentation. And it is a square with rounded corners that makes me think a little about Star Trek: TNGstyle communicator.
Coperni’s showcase doesn’t answer our many questions about the device, since as far as we know, no one seems to have worn it on the runway, but at least we know basically what it will look like now. We still don’t have a real idea of how self-contained it is, whether it supports third-party apps, or how to interact with it in general. Those questions will be important, especially with possible competition on the way from Chaudhri’s former Apple colleague Jony Ive and OpenAI.
Anyway, here are some more photos and videos from the showcase, starting with a close-up video of Naomi Campbell wearing it, from FashionTikTok account:
