We're a spinout from University College London Computer Science and we've developed a new data transfer application for smartphones (and more) called Chirp.
This is our thing - a technology inspired by birdsong and the principles of biomimicry.
We think it's pretty exciting since the app has great potential, although it's just the tip of the iceberg. Our plans include teaching the machines to sing.
