CEO Carl Pei Hints At Collaboration With Humane, Creator Of Ai Pin

Nothing CEO Carl Pei has taken to X (formerly Twitter) to potential collaboration with Ai Pin creator Humane. The post included a screenshot of a WhatsApp group conversation between Pei and the latter’s two co-founders Imran Chaudhri and Bethany Bongiorno.
