The tech world is abuzz with rumours of a new collaboration between two big names: Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI (the company behind the popular AI chatbot ChatGPT), and Jony Ive, the former design chief at Apple.

According to a report by The Information, Altman is seeking funding for a mysterious new project – an AI-powered personal device.

Details about the device itself are scarce, but whispers suggest it might ditch the traditional smartphone format altogether. This aligns with the concept behind devices like the Humane AI Pin, a voice-activated wearable that doesn't have a screen.

The idea seems to be that a powerful AI assistant could handle tasks and answer questions without the need for users to constantly stare at a display or navigate through apps.

While the project remains shrouded in secrecy, the potential involvement of Altman and Ive has certainly piqued the interest of the tech world.

If the rumours hold true, this collaboration between an AI powerhouse and a design visionary could lead to a groundbreaking new product that redefines how we interact with technology in our daily lives.

The rumours surrounding the ChatGPT Humane AI Pin take a financial turn. Reports suggest Altman and Ive are seeking a cool $1 billion to bring their vision to life. This hefty price tag hints at a major undertaking, potentially a whole new category of device.

Details on OpenAI's involvement remain unclear, but speculation points towards the inclusion of their widely-used ChatGPT chatbot within the device. This could further solidify the idea of a voice-controlled assistant, eliminating the need for traditional app navigation and screen interaction.

While whispers about funding discussions with SoftBank, a major investment company, surfaced back in September, these remain unconfirmed. However, Altman's recent visit to a Samsung chip factory suggests a focus on physical hardware development. The level of this hardware's sophistication, however, remains a mystery.
