TLDR: Humane CEO Imran Chaudhri demoed a wearable device developed by his AI-powered startup during a TED Talk. The screenless device uses a combination of voice and gestures for input and can project information onto nearby objects, eliminating the need for a smartphone to operate.
During the presentation, Chaudhri demonstrated the device's translation capabilities, showing the device translating his voice into French. He also answered a phone call from his wife, with the call information appearing as a green image projected onto his hand. According to Chaudhri, the device is a new kind of wearable platform built entirely from the ground up for artificial intelligence.
Humane has raised $230 million, including $100 million in March, from investors such as Microsoft, LG Technology Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures, and OpenAI CEO and co-founder Sam Altman.

TLDR: British semiconductor and software design company, Arm, is developing its own chip to showcase its designs, aimed at attracting new customers and fueling growth following a blockbuster IPO later this year.
The company traditionally sells its blueprint designs to chip manufacturers but hopes that the prototype will allow it to demonstrate the power and capabilities of its designs to the wider market.
Arm has formed a bigger team to execute the effort and is targeting the product at chip manufacturers more than software developers. It has built a new “solutions engineering” team that will lead the development of these prototype chips for mobile devices, laptops, and other electronics.
