You can sometimes even see children playing around with toy versions acting like they are heading to war. Reimagining the walkie-talkie, Milo, also known as The Action Communicator enables hands-free, multi-way, and real-time group voice conversation. As an adventurer, you might find your hands stuck in the midst of trails, slopes or water, but Milo can solve that for you.
The entire concept of Milo was actually based off on the founders’ true story from 6 years ago. Peter Celinski got the idea to create Milo when his kids skid off into the trees of Whistler’s famous steep, and he realized that some form of communication while being in the action is required. This was not only meant for safety purposes, it was also the instincts of a father that cared for his children.
Created through sophisticated audio processing algorithms and a proprietary mesh network, Milo combines an intuitive user interface and also thoughtful industrial designs for that smooth user experience. Despite all these fancy elements, it is easy enough to use, as users can just clip them on and be on their way. When someone speaks over Milo, it automatically picks up the voice and transmits it to others. The best part is that users do not need to stop or push a button, and they can just receive the voices over the built-in speaker. What differentiates it from traditional walkie-talkies is that everyone can respond in real-time while talking to each other like on their phones.
In order to create a chat group that receives messages from everyone within it, each device has to be brought within close proximity while the grouping button is pressed. This automatically pairs any device within a specific radius. Additionally, it also provides spoken confirmations for different actions and pairing, including grouping, connecting to a Bluetooth headset, displaying battery levels, and other key functions.
The gadget can be attached via the 4 Milo clips that features a magnetic alignment mechanism and a mechanical lock. You wouldn’t have to worry about losing track of someone or getting lost without a signal with Milo, as it attends to all your communication needs in the wild.
