AI-in-a-Box™ Unboxing Guide

Let’s walk you through what’s in the box and how to set them up.

There are four components in the box. You can get them on online retailers like Amazon, or order one from us. We test them and assemble them before we send it to you.

We also have a laptop version of the box, which allows you to open and start.
