As individuals around the world continue to find ways to safely socially distance during the COVID-19 pandemic, many are turning to outdoor activities like skiing, surfing, biking or hiking as opportunities to connect with friends and family while socially distancing. For many of these new adventurers, the common theme is maintaining connection across distances. An innovative new product, Milo, hopes to bring people closer together through these shared connections.
By simply clipping a Milo action communicator to a pocket, handlebars or onto an armband, a group can talk at a conversational volume, hands-free and phone-free. Milo integrates a variety of patented world-first features to deliver high-quality natural conversation, packaged in a simple and beautiful design. Milo is the walkie-talkie reimagined on an advanced technology software and hardware platform, enabling simple multi-way, full-duplex group voice conversations in-the-moment.
Peter Celinski, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Loose Cannon Systems, the developer of Milo, the action communicator, created Milo because he needed a better way to communicate with his kids on the slopes, and saw the potential to change outdoor adventures. The wearable is a market-setting product called the Action Communicator, because it lets you speak with your group naturally and hands-free, so you can keep your eyes on your surroundings.
Currently, Milo is available exclusively through Kickstarter, with plans to sell direct-to-consumer and in retail in 2021. For more information, please see their kickstarter video at https://vimeo.com/466758655 and check out www.okmilo.com
