The race to create the iPhone of artificial intelligence is heating up.
Rabbit, a technology startup, introduced its rival on Tuesday: a compact, orange walkie-talkie-style device.
According to the company, "AI agents" can do tasks on behalf of the user.
Rabbit's founder, Jesse Lyu, requests that the device plan him a trip to London; the keynote displays the device creating an itinerary and arranging his trip.
He gets a pizza, hails an Uber, and instructs the gadget on how to create an image with Midjourney.
The Rabbit r1 device is simply the latest in an increasingly active new hardware segment.
Altman and Softbank's Masayoshi Son are said to be discussing the creation of a separate AI hardware device alongside iPhone designer Jony Ive.
The Rabbit r1 is based on a new form of AI system known as a "large action model," according to Lyu during his presentation revealing the device.
