chirpio-logo1Chirp is a new application from London based Animal Systems lets you share your images, contacts, or links using only sound.

The distinctive noise of a Chirp - half-bird, half-robot (technical introduction) was designed to work on any device that makes sound and can maintain its functionality even on a busy street or in a pub. 

“Devices that were previously not connected to the internet can now be used to send information over the air” explains CEO and Founder, Patrick Bergel.

The system has been designed to be extended into many use-cases where it would be impractical to use existing network technologies and the team imagines doorbells, saxophones, ATMs, car horns, all being able to utilize the service.  Other features include the ability for more than one person to receive a chirp at once (over a PA system, radio,YouTube movie, etc) and a planned API to enable developers to make new kinds of communication apps for the platform.

Chirp is currently available for iPhone on the App Store or you can learn more about how the app works at: http://chirp.io/
