Very è fashionable in recent months, objects based on AI and designed to replace our phones do not seem to be unanimously accepted. with the public and the specialized press.

Only a few weeks after the flop of the Humane Pin, another object based on on artificial intelligence seems to follow the same direction. The Rabbit R1, a small orange box launched by the young company Rabbit, has been available for a few days on the firm's official website. While many Internet users have jumped on the product in question (we are talking about 10,000 units sold when pre-orders opened), the latter would ultimately be nothing more than a simple Android application logged ;eacute;e in a small plastic case and sold elsewhere. 199 dollars.

But what is the Rabbit R1? This little box displays a little companion in the shape of a rabbit and presents itself as an alternative to the Rabbit R1. our smartphones. Based in particular on artificial intelligence, the Rabbit R1 is capable of responding to requests. your questions, manage your messages and emails, take photos, search the web, and many other functions already available. available or à come.

Unlike the Humane Pin whose number of bugs reported is high. its output is still colossal à the time when As we write these lines, the Rabbit R1 seems rather stable according to the first tests by the specialist press.

The company, however, insisted on this. react è AndroidAuthority's article clarified that the Rabbit R1 was not an app, but that it was certainly possible to be one# 39;s use on a device other than the box sold by the company. This manipulation would, however, present risks according to the company Rabbit which cites confidentiality problems. and piracy.
