Figma Removes AI Feature After Viral Post Exposing It

Figma's newest AI feature, “Make Designs” (which was able to instantly generate design drafts based on text prompts), was pulled after generating designs that closely resembled Apple's iOS weather app.

Here’s the timeline of events:

  • In a viral post, Andy Allen from Not Boring Software highlighted the similarities, warning designers to check their work to avoid legal trouble.

  • Figma CTO Kris Rasmussen clarified that Figma didn't train the AI models, which are based on third-party systems from OpenAI and Amazon.

  • Figma CEO Dylan Field then took responsibility, explaining that the rush to meet deadlines led to this issue.

📹️ Runway’s “Gen-3 Alpha” is Now Available to Everyone

In other AI news, Runway, the creators of the recently-announced “Gen-3 Alpha” text-to-video model (we wrote about it here), made the tool free for everyone to use.

The tool can create 10-second highly realistic video clips with improved generation speed and precision (compared to Gen-2).

Unfortunately, it costs $1 to generate to create one 10-second clip 😅
