Will the Rabbit R1 Suck?

Once the R1 is in the hands of consumers (5K+ units delivered), and the hype has died down (~1 month later), will it suck? (End date may be adjusted accordingly, if there are shipping delays)

Suckiness is of course entirely subjective, so this market will be resolved via a future manifold poll, titled simply "Does the Rabbit R1 Suck"?

The poll will run for 1 week, and the description of the poll will clarify that the poll is assessing suckiness at that point in time, and not speculation that it might improve in the future.

I might bet in this market.

The poll hasn't closed yet, but it's looking unanimous after 24h, so I'm going to resolve the market now.

Poll

How about instead using a user rating score from a site with reviews as a threshold for resolving this market?

btw I'm thinking I'll start the 1-week poll a week before the market ends (so they end at roughly the same time), any objections?

(I originally left it unspecified)

@retr0id oops, I didn't start the poll on time - probably fairest to let the poll run for a whole week, then resolve the market after

Videos from users have started to drop. I've found this one from a reddit thread. Compared to the Humane Pin the response is pretty fast!

Reviews for the Humane pin are coming in - obviously not the R1 but I think they'll be a strong indicator.

Per my initial description, I've just extended the end date to the May 23rd, exactly 1 month after the announced "launch party" date of April 23rd, which iiuc is also the current ship date.

Rabbit seem to be posting raw (i.e. uneditied) POV videos of the Rabbit R1 in action. Seems to fit the description given in the on-stage announcement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3T5wmZOsjdA

I'd argue this is an update downwards for this market, perhaps 20-40%.

@ElliotDavies Interesting, but the fact that this is consistent with what's been previously announced/demoed doesn't change my opinion much either way. And the concrete capability shown here isn't that fundamentally different to a "hey siri, send a text to xxx" that we've had for ages. I know there's LAM magic going on in the background (supposedly), but I'm not yet convinced it'll be the revolution some people are hoping for. (all that said, I'm still not betting in this market, I'm too uncertain about it!)

Marques' comment was clearly worded not to give anything away, but my reading between the lines + blind guessing is that he actually has positive sentiment towards it
