We have now come to know more details about the device Rabbit R1which was presented at CES 2024. It will power them LLM (large language model) by Perplexitywhich is a San Francisco-based startup that has ambitions to overtake Google in the field of artificial intelligence (and it is therefore not surprising that he has already received financial support from companies such as NVIDIA or Jeff Bezos).
Perplexity will provide AI search within the device for $199 without the need for any subscription. In addition, the first 100,000 R1 owners will receive a free annual subscription Perplexity Pro, which normally costs $200. This subscription adds file upload support, a daily quota of more than 300 complex queries, and the ability to switch to other AI models (GPT-4, Claude 2.1, or Gemini).
Designed by Teenage Engineering, the Rabbit R1 features a 2.88-inch touchscreen display, a scroll wheel, two microphones, a speaker, a rotating camera, and a Push-to-Talk button. Utilizing its large language model (LAM), this specialized gadget can perform tasks such as booking rides, searching for recipes based on ingredientswhich you have available, identification of persons and objects (including items in your fridge for example) or fact checking.
