Title: Santa Monica AI Startup ‘rabbit’ Announces Game-Changing Handheld AI Device at CES 2024
In a stunning unveiling at CES 2024, Santa Monica-based AI startup ‘rabbit’ showcased their latest innovation, the r1. This handheld and touchscreen AI device serves as a one-stop solution, combining the functionalities of a walkie-talkie and a camera within a single portable gadget.
The primary objective of the r1 is to eliminate the need for a smartphone by providing users with all the app functionalities in a compact and convenient device. With a simple press of a button, users can effortlessly issue voice commands to the AI, which will then perform the requested tasks.
Central to the functioning of the r1 is the advanced rabbit OS and the powerful Large Action Model (LAM), empowering the device to comprehend and accomplish a wide range of tasks. Developed through a collaboration with teenage engineering, the r1 takes inspiration from nostalgic devices like the Tamagotchi and Post-it notes, exuding a charming retro vibe.
Boasting a compact 2.88-inch touchscreen display and weighing a mere 115 grams, the r1 also features a push-to-talk button and a scroll wheel for effortless navigation. The device’s camera, aptly named ‘rabbit eye,’ can rotate 360 degrees, enabling users to engage in video calls and survey their environment with ease.
Addressing privacy concerns, rabbit has made user privacy a top priority. Individuals have the option to delete their data and exercise control over which actions are delegated to the AI system. Additionally, the r1 offers both WiFi and cellular connectivity options, allowing users to insert their own SIM card.
Under the hood, the r1 is equipped with a MediaTek Helio P35 processor, 4 GB of memory, 128 GB of storage, and a USB-C port. Offering a day-long battery life, the device does not feature an always-active listening mode.
Those attending CES 2024 can experience the revolutionary r1 firsthand at rabbit’s booth, where pre-sales for this cutting-edge device have already begun. Priced at $199, the r1 requires no additional monthly subscription fees. Shipping for US orders is expected to commence in late March 2024.
With the r1’s remarkable capabilities and its reasonable price point, rabbit is poised to revolutionize the AI market and provide users with an unparalleled experience in the palm of their hands.
