There’s a new AI-powered device in town, and this one comes in orange. Hot on the heels of the Humane Ai Pin, Rabbit has officially launched its debut R1 companion, and I was among the first to pick ours up at the company’s sold-out event at New York’s TWA Hotel. With a brand-new Rabbit OS under the hood and Teenage Engineering’s fingerprints all over the quirky Leuchtorange case, the R1 is about as opposite from its chest-mounted rival as can be.

One day is hardly enough time to put Rabbit’s Large Action Model through its paces, but it’s enough time for me to pick out a few first impressions, so let’s venture down the rabbit hole.
