San Francisco, CA – January 19, 2024 – Rabbit R1 and Perplexity AI have announced a new partnership that will bring live, up-to-date answers to the Rabbit R1 AI assistant device.
The R1, designed by Teenage Engineering and preordered by over 50,000 customers already, features a 2.88-inch touchscreen, scroll wheel, rotating camera, and push-to-talk button for accessing AI-powered information on the go.
Through this collaboration, Perplexity will provide real-time search results and answers to R1 users’ questions without needing a subscription.
Perplexity combines advanced natural language processing with large language models like GPT-3.5 to deliver precise responses that go beyond traditional search engines.
This will give early adopters access to Perplexity’s newest large language models as they are released, starting with the highly anticipated GPT-4 later this year.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Perplexity to give R1 customers an amazing out-of-box experience,” said Rabbit CEO Josephine Smith. “With Perplexity’s technology, Rabbit owners will have lightning-fast access to up-to-date information on any topic imaginable.”
At rabbit, we’re always on the hunt for top AI services and partners to help our users accomplish tasks quickly and accurately.
