What is CES?

AI Highlights of CES 2024 for far

Rabbit R1 is a revolutionary handheld AI device launched in at CES 2024. This compact gadget, priced at $199 and currently available for pre-sale, is designed to enhance your interaction with smartphone apps in a more intuitive manner.

The Rabbit R1 is equipped with a 2.88-inch touchscreen, a push-to-talk button, an analog scroll wheel, a microphone, speakers, and a cutting-edge Rabbit Eye 360-degree rotational camera. It operates on a MediaTek Helio P35 processor with 4GB RAM, 128GB storage, a USB-C port, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and a 4G-enabled SIM card slot.

But how is it better than a phone? Well, Rabbit R1 is one of its kind AI smartphone that employs a Large Action Model to seamlessly execute user commands within various apps. By learning and mimicking user intentions and behaviors, it ensures efficient and prompt execution. 

For instance, when linked with Spotify, it not only plays music through voice commands but also performs contextual tasks like playing other songs from the same album. You can even instruct the AI with specific commands, such as “find me an Uber that can fit me and my six friends,” and watch as the Rabbit R1 books an UberXL instead of a regular Uber.

In my opinion, the Rabbit R1 is not just a device, it’s a game-changer  that will revolutionize the way we use our smartphones.

While it’s not available for purchase just yet, Samsung has announced that it will soon be heading into production, promising to bring this innovative home companion to households in the near future. Although this device seems very exciting, I don’t think it will be a big hit as a consumer product at least for the next few years.
