In August 2013, Apple Inc. announced a new protocol known as iBeacon. iBeacon was originally aimed to increase the interactive experiences in consumer behaviors; however, only malls and department stores were capable of affording the high cost required for its software developments. “Talky”, although designed using the same protocol, is aim to benefit users like you and I.
Make Things Talk.
“We’re not selling a tag, we’re granting objects the ability to talk.” said Project Leader Alix Chen. There are many moments in life, we can live through them quietly and calmly, or we can be playful and make those moments as fun as possible. “Talky” can help us demonstrate a little bit of effort, show us a little bit of fun, and bring us a memory we’ll never forget.
Tracker / Reminder / Messenger / Story Teller
“Talky” is designed for normal users like us, and the free APP is designed tailored to our needs; the main interactive APP offers video messaging and accessible loading while other functions act as a Pet/Kid Finder/Anti-lost/Alarm.
Limitless Application that Connects Men, Objects, and Space
“Talky” is different than the anti-lost locators on the market, it is much more than that. With the iBeacon protocol, “Talky” allocates “space” as a factor to communicate with everyone who is close by via Bluetooth, allowing them to retrieve information and videos related to that particular area. “We believe technology should reduce the distance between each other, and that is what Talky is aimed to achieve.” -Danny Chen, Founder of xBeacon Co, Ltd.
“Talky” will be listed on crowd funding website Indiegogo on Febuary 12th, 2015 for a period of time till mid of April, if you are interested in supporting this amazing device, you can acquire it for $19 USD as an early bird special.
