Awesome project from Daniel Chote, via raspberrypipod

talkiepi is a wifi “walkie” talkie for your kids and their friends. It provides a very simple “push to talk” interface. When you push the button and talk, all the other talkiepis in the channel will hear what is being said.

talkiepi uses Mumble for its voice communication protocol. Mumble is an open source, lightweight, high quality voice chat system designed for use by PC gamers. Mumble lent itself perfectly for this use case. There are already software clients for all platforms (Mac, Win, Linux, IOS, Android), meaning you can talk with your talkiepi using your phone or computer, and you’re not limited to just talkiepi devices! By utilizing Mumble channels, user registration, and access control lists, you can configure different groups of talkiepis, just like using different channels on a traditional walkie talkie.
