Earlier this year a startup called Humane demonstrated an upcoming device that’s expected to be a screenless wearable AI assistant. But when the company didn’t actually show us what it looks like or tell us when it would arrive.

We also know that it’s powered by an unspecified Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and that a “full unveiling” is coming November 9th.
Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.
