It’s not easy to break an age-old habit and in this era of technology, smartphones are a tough one plastered to our faces all the time. Humane Ai Pin has begun the revolution to cut this off and when Humane Ai Pin is yet to start its deliveries, people are already searching for Humane Ai Pin alternatives because of the speculations of limitations in it’s features and functionality, which might not help them to part ways from smartphones.

We shall understand over here that the Humane Ai Pin is not a complete alternative to smartphones, it’s just encouraging people to use screen less and try adopting a shift which Ai Pin could help them achieve. Being screenfree cannot at all eradicate the total usage/reliability, it’s just about the diversity of purposes for which we hold our mobile phones closer than enough to our eyes, if purposes could be served by some simple gestures, touch and voice commands then why not think for a shift. 

Speculations are high for Humane Ai Pin being the iPhone killer, because the co-founder couple are ex-Apple workers. It could be an alternative and disrupt the market but still it’s too early to even say this, and a different category of tech enthusiasts are even searching for Humane Ai Pin alternatives already impatiently. This post will address the same concern and will discuss some anticipated Humane Ai Pin alternatives. However we shall only look for alternatives when the existing ones are short of viability, let the deliveries roll.

Humane Ai Pin Alternatives

The top most strong competitors are Humane Ai Pin alternatives are Rabbit r1 and Apple vision pro. We have shortlisted these two only because of the similarities in functions, features and less demand to hold them in your hand. This however completely depends upon the basic needs of the consumer and how they want to conceive the device as a product to consume. Some categorically could abolish the requirement for the Humane Ai Pin because they need a screen for most of their routine tasks and to the contrary some could completely adopt the screenfree one and go easily yet efficiently. Some still could feel a little need for a screen and for that purpose Rabbit r1 serves the purposes with a small 2.88inch display. 

For an immersive experience and an ultimate integration of augmented reality in their daily tasks for assistance, some are looking forward to Apple Vision Pro. This completely tells us that technologies which have been with us since long are hard to parted ways with, it’s not because of the efficiency, it’s because we know each other well enough that our intuitions are mingled in such a manner that even the smart AI could not take them away from us and break our habits in order to form new.

We as humans take time to learn something new, and when learnt and adapted well we make it immerse in our behavior and this synch takes away our efforts and cuts short the time. That’s why many among us still take that old route to office which we are using since school days, no matter the new elevated corridors or ring roads are built to a reduced length, it’s because of the familiar nature of every aspect coming our way, we know every pothole ahead and our intuitions grow wise enough with time that they know quite well what to do next even if we are blindfolded.

Humane Ai Pin Alternative – Rabbit r1

Jesse Lyu is the name doing rounds on the internet and why not when it’s the name behind the tiny device promising to replace mobile phones. Rabbit, formed by Jesse in partnership with Swedish company Teenage engineering, where Teenage engineering is primarily involved in design and aesthetics of Rabbit r1. The small 2.88inch display, with a touch and analog button gives us a flashback of a 90’s pocket video game. Equipped with every feature and specification like any other smartphone, but in a considerably decreased size.

Price, Subscriptions & Availability

Rabbit r1 price starts from $199 plus taxes, shipping fees and duties for international orders and is currently available in single variant. No other charges or monthly subscriptions are attached. Rabbit r1 is currently available in only one but lucrative color, leuchtorange.

The low price and the no subscription feature seem very lucrative and challenging for the Humane Ai Pin, which however seems like adopting the footprints of Apple.

Please see the below delivery schedule for the Rabbit r1;

Rabbit r1 is currently available for pre-ordering for customers in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, certain countries in the European Union (Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden), South Korea, Japan, and Australia. They will ship r1 devices only to mailing addresses in those countries/jurisdictions.

Rabbit has also announced the delivery schedule on their official website, which is as below;

  • Rabbit r1 1st batch orders to US/Canada addresses in March-April 2024 
  • Rabbit r1 2nd batch orders to US/Canada addresses in April-May 2024
  • Rabbit r1 3rd batch orders to US/Canada addresses in May-June 2024
  • Rabbit r1 4th, 5th and 6th batch orders to US/Canada addresses in June-July 2024. 

Shipping to non-US/Canada addresses for all batches is expected to begin later in 2024, any other announcement made by the manufacturer will be shared with our readers once released.

Charging & Battery Life

Rabbit r1, battery gives about  500 cycles > 80%, charging current 500mA, rate capacity 1000mAh which lasts for almost a day. The device could be easily charged with a USB-C type charger for seamless usage. This also challenges the battery life of the Humane Ai Pin and also the unconventional feature to attach the battery booster with the main computer which also seems something very complicated for the consumers at this early stage, let’s wait and watch till users share some real time comments post using the device.


Rabbit r1 comes with a 2.88inch TFT touchscreen display, which is quite sufficient to read and see notifications, hope you remember the introductory mobile phones from Nokia and Motorola. Hence, no challenges here for the Humane Ai Pin for it’s being totally screenless.

Optical Recognition

Rabbit r1 is capable of understanding and reading an image or object when it’s under its field view of range which is 20-40 cm and you have to set the camera angle and adjust the image/object accordingly.  By utilizing the details, it can then explain the object/image in simple words without you searching for any detail.

Operating System

Rabbit r1 is powered by Rabbit’s self developed Rabbit operating system which functions along with a Large action model(LAM) along with MediaTek MT6765 Octa-core (Helio P35) with max cpu frequency of 2.3GHz and 4GB memory along with 128GB of storage.


Rabbit R1 camera is equipped with specifications as photo resolution of 8MP, 3264×2448 and video resolution as 24fps, 1080p with a 360° rotation and has been given the name, Rabbit’s eye, for the reason it provides you a complete view of the surroundings. You can quickly capture photos or videos by a gentle press on the push button which is on the side and then could adjust the angle and the frame as per your need. 

Touch Control Button & Gestures

Rabbit ri comes with a TFT touchscreen which functions like a smartphone one. The scroll analog button on the front enables you to scroll up and down to toggle between options. A push button provided on the left edge of the Rabbit r1 comes in operation while you perform many tasks. The voice command feature gives you more leverage to access it more easily, efficiently and quickly while you are busy with some other task. 

SIM & Connectivity

Rabbit r1 comes with a conventional SIM slot, which gives the consumer freedom to choose the SIM and network type depending upon their preferences. The device also connects to Bluetooth 5.0 / Wi-Fi with 2.4GHz + 5GHz / 4G LTE.


Rabbit r1 brings in use of applications but in a very different way. The display of only 2.88 inches hardly allows users to operate apps, but this is one reason. Consumers at the very first stage of registration of the device will be required to register their applications which will integrate them with Rabbit r1. Later then they can use applications by simply commanding the devices through voice. You can book cabs and order food but without switching between 100 pages.

“The era of spatial computing has arrived,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Apple Vision Pro is the most advanced consumer electronics device ever created. Its revolutionary and magical user interface will redefine how we connect, create, and explore.”

Apple Vision Pro has been indifferently built, never before seen, first spatial computer that will revolutionarily change how people work, collaborate, connect, relive memories, and enjoy entertainment. The device does not have any buttons or other controllers and can only be controlled by the user’s voice, hand gestures, and eye movement. Created of glass and aluminum body, Apple Vision Pro connects it to a ‘Light Seal’. It comes with an adjustable strap with a cushion against the back of your head made of elastic fabric and glasses adjustable by a small roll-on button. A 4K display per eye, and a micro-OLED display, which consists of 23 million pixels is something very interesting.

Price, Subscriptions & Availability

The price for the Apple Vision Pro starts from $3499. The pre-orders have started from January 19, 2024 and it’s available in the Apple store since February 2, 2024, in the U.S region only. Apple has not announced any schedule or plans for its orders and deliveries globally. Subscription plans are also the same as the other Apple services which usually comes with other Apple devices like Macbook or iPhone. 

Charging & Battery Life

Apple Vision Pro is powered by an external rechargeable battery which can be used for up to 2 hours of general use and 2.5 hours of video watching when charged fully, or for the whole day when connected to power. In the meantime when you’re not wearing it, the battery also powers the Apple Vision Pro. If your Apple Vision Pro is inoperational for 24 hours, it will turn off automatically.

The Apple Vision Pro battery could be easily charged by connecting it to a power outlet using a USB-C Charge Cable and an Apple USB-C power adapter rated for 30W or higher.


Apple vision pro is equipped with 23 million pixels in a 3D display system of 3660 X 3200. A Micro‑OLED with 7.5‑micron pixel pitch and 92% DCI‑P3 which supports refresh rates: 90Hz, 96Hz, 100Hz and playback multiples of 24fps and 30fps for judder‑free video.

Optical Recognition

There is no specific information currently available which suggests that Apple vision pro is enabled with the optical recognition technology, which identifies the object or picture in their frame view range and further quickly converts the related information into the form of text or voice.

However, the Iris‑based biometric authentication for Optic ID data encryption is provided in the device, which is accessible only to the Secure Enclave processor. This feature secures personal data within apps and make purchases from the iTunes Store and App Store

Operating System

No doubts on the standalone and one of its type operating systems ever built. Apple Vision Pro is very much enhanced with the power of iOS which and for this particular device it is known as vision OS with an Apple M2 (8-Core, 16-Core Neural Engine), Apple R1 (12 ms photon latency, 256 GB/s memory bandwidth) and memory of 16 GB along with storage of 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB.


The Apple Vision Pro is Apple’s introductory device into the 3D cameras world which offers a unique experience as compared to traditional cameras.
