Learn new skills with MIT's haptic feedback gloves

PLUS: How many stars did your GPT get?


Good morning, human brains, and welcome back to your daily munch of AI news.

Here’s what’s on the menu today:

  • Use your hand, not your brain. 👋 🤤

    MIT published a paper on AI-powered, haptic feedback gloves.

  • Google disabled Gemini’s image generator 🤦‍♂️ 💥

    It sparked controversy for generating inaccurate historical images.

  • Stop wasting time with worthless GPTs 🤩 🌟

    OpenAI launched a GPT rating system, builder profiles, and more.


Give me a hand, will ya? 👋 🤤

In October, we reported on the Rewind Pendant. It’s a wearable AI necklace that captures and transcribes your conversations and stores them on your phone.

In November, we covered Humane’s AI pin. It costs $699 plus $24 per month.

Earlier this month, we reported on Frame’s AR glasses. They are fully open-source, leverage multiple AI models, and more.

Put AI all over my body, please.

You got it. Last month, MIT researchers published a paper on AI gloves. They can teach you physical skills using tactile feedback.

What can they teach me?

They can help you learn how to play the piano, master video games, operate robotics, and more. When used with VR and AR, they enhance training simulations for surgeons, pilots, and more.

How do they work?

One example involved an expert pianist playing a song with the gloves on. The sensors recorded the movements and converted them into personalized haptic instructions, which guided the students’ gloves.

Sweet. What’s under the hood?

The gloves use digital embroidery with tactile sensors and haptic actuators that vibrate and guide you through tasks. An AI model personalizes touch feedback based on your hand movements using just 15 seconds of data.

I have Sasquatch hands. Will they fit?

The gloves take under 10 minutes to customize based on fit, sensor layout, and specific application.

I need these gloves.

You can’t buy them, but an open-access paper was published in Nature. To read the paper, click here.

Gemini Shm-emini 🤦‍♂️ 💥

Back in December, we reported on Google Gemini’s launch. We covered its controversial demo, the different models, specs, and more.

A couple of days later, we covered Microsoft’s Medprompt+. It’s a prompting technique for GPT-4 that crushed Gemini Ultra on several benchmarks.

Get it together, Google.

Last week, Google paused Gemini’s image generation capabilities. It was spitting out inaccurate historical and cultural images.

What happened?

Social media users exposed Gemini’s ethnic inaccuracies when depicting historical images. This sparked a debate over AI bias, representation, political agendas, and more.

Why was it generating inaccurate images?

AI expert, Peter Gostev, revealed an overcorrection in Google’s method, which modifies Gemini’s prompts to include various ethnicities in its images.

What did Google say?

It acknowledged Gemini’s shortcomings and said it will re-release a better version “soon.”


How many stars did your GPT get? 🤩 🌟

In January, we reported on the GPT store. We went over how to access it, find new GPTs, share your own GPTs, and more.

In February, we covered how to use multiple GPTs in a single chat. This allows you to integrate your GPTs, have them debate each other, and more.

More GPT juice?

You bet. OpenAI announced two new GPT store updates. It added a rating system for GPTs and expanded builder profilers.

You can rate GPTs?

Yes, the update introduced a 1-5 star rating system for custom GPTs. This helps you weed out the good GPTs from the bad.

Cool. What about the builder profiles?

Your builder profile now includes social media handles, average ratings, total reviews, usage metrics, and more. This allows you to make informed decisions before using other people’s GPTs.

Can we monetize our GPTs yet?




Swizzle — a multimodal, low-code web app development tool.

Flipner — a writing assistant that offers different styles, translations, and more.

Dorik — a no-code, intuitive website builder.

Think Pieces

Does AI work better when you’re nice to them? Being polite or offering a financial reward to ChatGPT makes a huge difference in its performance.

Are you blacker than ChatGPT? A quiz game that reveals AI’s tendency for bias.

Why Tyler Perry put his $800M studio expansion on hold. After seeing OpenAI’s new image generator, Sora, he’s rethinking his entire strategy.

Startup News

Google launched Gemma. It’s a suite of small, open-source AI models allegedly designed to promote responsible AI development.

Stability AI released Stable Diffusion 3.0. It’s a new image generation model with better image quality and performance.

Suno AI released v3 Alpha. It’s a new music generator that features extended song lengths, better quality audio, and more.


LongRoPE — a method that extends the context window of LLMs to 2048 tokens.

Aria — Meta’s multimodal dataset capture through its Project Aria glasses.

Pruned Networks — Google Research’s paper on network parameters in deep reinforcement learning (RL) agents.
