CES 2024 Recap
In a notable advancement in artificial intelligence and consumer electronics, Rabbit Inc. has introduced the Rabbit R1, a groundbreaking AI-powered handheld device. Designed as a compact and intuitive companion, the R1 is engineered to streamline and simplify digital tasks through sophisticated AI capabilities. Equipped with Rabbit's proprietary Large Action Model (LAM), the device can efficiently navigate and operate various applications, enhancing user interaction.
The Large Action Model (LAM) used in the Rabbit R1 represents a significant departure from the Large Language Models (LLM) like ChatGPT, focusing on direct interaction and task execution within apps rather than just generating text-based responses.
The Rabbit R1, crafted with the esteemed design firm Teenage Engineering, presents a sleek, retro-inspired aesthetic. Weighing a mere 115 grams and featuring a 2.88-inch touchscreen display, this device is not only portable, but also aesthetically pleasing. Unique to the R1 is the "rabbit eye," a motorized vision system that augments its functionality with advanced computer vision applications.
The R1 operates independently of smartphones, offering both Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity. Its internal hardware includes a 2.3 GHz MediaTek Helio P35 processor, 4 GB of memory, and 128 GB of storage. Prioritizing user privacy, Rabbit ensures that no user credentials are stored and the device's camera and microphone are activated only upon user command.
Marketed at approximately $199, the Rabbit R1 emerges as an innovative solution in AI-assisted devices, combining advanced technology with user-centric design to redefine the landscape of digital task management. Click on this link to learn more: - https://www.rabbit.tech

Wi-Fi 7 - if there was ever a time to upgrade your home Wi-Fi system it is now!
Wow! It feels like it was just yesterday when Wi-Fi 6E was released! At CES 2024, Wi-Fi 7 was a major highlight, marking a significant advancement in wireless connectivity technology. Wi-Fi 7, with its Multi-Link Operation (MLO), promises faster speeds, better low latency performance, and an enhanced user experience compared to its predecessor, Wi-Fi 6E.
One of the key features of Wi-Fi 7 is the support for 320MHz channels, which allows for more data transmission, significantly boosting network speeds. The addition of the 6 GHz band eliminates interference from older devices, ensuring a smoother and more reliable connection.
TP-Link showcased a robust lineup of Wi-Fi 7 products, including Deco Mesh Wi-Fi systems and Archer routers. The Deco Mesh Wi-Fi systems are designed to provide seamless coverage for homes of various sizes, featuring the new 6 GHz band and offering speeds up to 33 Gbps. TP-Link's Archer series routers, including the high-performance Archer BE900 and the gaming-focused Archer GE800, also made their debut, boasting impressive speeds and advanced features tailored for different user needs.
These advancements in Wi-Fi 7 technology promise to deliver ultra-fast, low-latency, and stable wireless connections, significantly enhancing the connectivity experience in both home and business environments. With an expected influx of over 233 million Wi-Fi 7 devices entering the market this year, the technology is set to redefine wireless networking standards.
