AI hardware is seemingly everywhere.A slew of sci-fi products came after OpenAI launched ChatGPT in November 2022. These are 5 AI-powered devices that have been unveiled, from the AI Pin to Meta’s sunglasses.AI-powered tech hardware is having a moment.
Since OpenAI launched ChatGPT in November 2022, companies have been racing to cash in on the generative AI hype. Major tech firms like Meta and Google have built their own large language models, and AI startups are raising hundreds of millions of dollars to make tools that could save time and boost productivity.
Some companies are taking their AI efforts to the next level: integrating AI into flashy new consumer devices. Jony Ives, a tech analyst, called this new frontier of hardware innovation "the golden goose" for tech leaders in the next decade.
So far, some major projects are being secret.
Rumors are swirling that Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, is working with Jony Ives, the designer of the iPhone, on building a consumer AI device. Apple has plans to integrate AI features into its iPhone, iPad, and MacOS as it seeks to ramp up its generative AI efforts, Bloomberg reported. We don’t know the specifics on these products just yet.
But some companies are already ahead of the curve bringing their shiny new AI toys to market. Here are the 6 AI-powered devices that have been unveiled since the launch of ChatGPT:
Rabbit’s R1 – Starts at $199Rabbit’s $199 R1 can interact with smartphone and computer apps using voice commands. Rabbit
The R1 is a pocket-sized AI device to help people complete tasks that typically need apps you can only get on a smartphone or computer.
Users can push a button to speak into the R1 like they would with a walkie-talkie and have it arrange transportation, book flights, and make reservations through apps like Uber, Rabbit says. Users can also train the device to carry out specific commands, the company says.
The $199 device is available for preorder. The first batch of units will begin shipping as early as March, according to Rabbit.
Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses – Starts at $299Meta’s latest pair of Ray-Ban Smart Glasses now includes an AI assistant. Jordan Hart
Meta’s latest iteration of its Ray-Ban smart glasses is designed to make carrying out daily tasks just a bit more seamless.
Launched last September, the shades include a built-in conversational assistant that wearers can prompt by saying, "Hey Meta."
The tech giant says the AI assistant can answer questions, summarize search results, and call and message people. It can even suggest AI-generated comments on Facebook and Instagram posts.
The AI-powered glasses are available in 7 colors, starting at $299. Glasses can be custom-made with prescription lenses for an additional cost.

If AI devices for your pockets and eyes aren’t enough, you may want to get your hands on Humane’s AI Pin.
Designed by ex-Apple employees, the pin is a standalone, screenless device that can attach to your clothes. The AI Pin includes a camera, sensors, speakers, a "trust light" that flashes if it’s recording, and a small projector that can beam information onto your hand. It’s powered by GPT-4, the large language model behind OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
Users can ask the pin to play certain songs and answer questions through voice commands, Humane says. The device’s camera can also feed you data about the world around you, the company says, like showing how much protein there is in a handful of almonds when the camera is pointed at it.
Now available for purchase, the AI Pin starts at $699 and requires an additional $24 monthly for a dedicated cell phone number. If you want a polished finish on the Pin, that’ll cost you another $100.
Shipments are expected to begin starting in March, according to the company.
Samsung Galaxy S24 – Starts at $799.99 Samsung’s Galaxy S24 lineup includes new AI features. Samsung
If wearable AI-devices aren’t your thing, a smartphone with AI capabilities may be a better option.
Samsung’s Galaxy S24 — the company’s latest flagship phone released last January — includes a "Circle to Search" feature where users can draw a circle around a particular object in an image and have the phone identify what exactly it is.
In a product review, Business Insider found that the feature is "especially good" at identifying products, celebrities, and some building locations.
S24 phones also include AI-photo editing, allowing users to delete objects or people from pictures.
The Galaxy S24’s base phone starts at $799.99. The Galaxy S24 Ultra, the most advanced version in the lineup, begins at $1,299.
Prophetic’s Halo – Starts at $2,000Prophetic created an AI-powered headband called Halo that it says will help you control your dreams.Prophetic
Prophetic claims that the Halo, its AI-powered headband, will give wearers the ability to control their dreams.
Users wear the Halo to sleep. The headband, according to the startup, will then be able to detect when a user has entered their deepest stage of slumber. Once it does, it will activate a series of instructions to shoot ultrasound signals into the brain to induce dreaming, Prophetic says.
The company opened registration to its beta program for initial users to try the Halo — which retails for $2,000. It’s not clear if the headband has been tested by real humans outside of the lab — or if it does actually let you control your dreams.
