Rabbit CEO Jesse Lyu joins Jason to discuss the viral launch of Rabbit's R1 AI companion device at CES, covering the ambitious product vision (1:37), unique design (23:30), custom-built OS and LLM (11:30), manufacturing logistics (49:45), and much more!

Key Points

  • Hardware development should be driven by necessity, not preference, focusing on enhancing software experiences.
  • The Rabbit R1 is a handheld AI companion that aims to simplify and speed up interactions with software through voice commands and a Large Action Model (LAM).
  • Rabbit aims to expand the capabilities of its hardware through community involvement, allowing users to teach the device new tasks and potentially create and share their own versions of the Rabbit OS.
