In the ever-evolving landscape of artificial intelligence, CES 2024 witnessed the debut of Rabbit Inc., a Santa Monica-based AI startup that introduced a groundbreaking mobile device—The Rabbit R1. This pocket-sized marvel is not just another smartphone; it’s an AI-powered handheld device set to transform the way we interact with our mobile applications.
Key Features of the Rabbit R1
The Rabbit R1 stands out with its impressive array of features. Powered by a MediaTek Helio P35 processor, it boasts a 360-degree rotatable camera, a push-to-talk button, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even a 4G SIM slot. Priced at $199, the device is currently available for pre-sale.
Unveiling the Rabbit R1: A Closer Look
The R1 is more than just hardware; it operates on a unique Large Action Model (LAM)-based operating system called Rabbit OS. The device is equipped with a touch screen, a push-to-talk button, an analog scroll wheel, a microphone for voice commands, and speakers for responses. The standout feature, Rabbit Eye, is a Computer Vision-enabled 360-degree rotational camera.
How Does the Rabbit R1 Work?
Rabbit Inc. claims that the Rabbit R1 learns user behavior and intentions within specific apps, mimicking them swiftly and reliably. The Rabbit OS facilitates seamless navigation through various applications, promising a faster and more intuitive user experience compared to traditional smartphones.
Practical Applications of Rabbit R1
The Rabbit R1’s capabilities are best demonstrated through practical applications. For example, when linked with Spotify, the device not only plays music using voice commands but also performs contextual tasks like providing information about the song, composer, and more. For ride-sharing apps like Uber, the R1 streamlines the process, enabling users to book a ride with a single command.
Founder’s Vision: Jesse Lyu
Jesse Lyu, the Founder and CEO of Rabbit Inc., envisions an intuitive app-free experience with the power of AI. Lyu emphasizes that their Large Action Model goes beyond understanding natural language; it generates actions on behalf of users to enhance productivity.
Availability and Future Development
The Rabbit R1 is currently available for pre-sale at $199, with orders set to ship in the US in March. Initially trained to work with popular apps, future updates will introduce an experimental capability, allowing users to train their own “Rabbits” for specific tasks on niche apps and workflows.
