The Rabbit R1’s standout feature lies in its ability to learn user behavior and intentions, mimicking actions for quicker app usage.

According to Rabbit Founder and CEO Jesse Lyu, the R1 aims to provide an intuitive app-free experience, surpassing the capabilities of Large Language Models like ChatGPT.

The device is currently available for pre-sale at $199, with US shipping starting in March.

Initially compatible with popular apps, future updates will allow users to train their R1 devices for specific tasks on niche apps and workflows.
