MachineTalker Electrifies Energy Audit Market, Introduces GreenTalkers™

Wireless Sensors Monitor Energy Reduction During Peak Load Hours, Resulting in Millions of Dollars of Rebates to Power Users, and a Growing Market for MTKN

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 1, 2007 -- MachineTalker, Inc. (OTCBB: MTKN), developer of smart wireless security networks and tracking systems, announces that the company has successfully tested and demonstrated three versions of its GreenTalker™ line of intelligent wireless mesh networked sensors. The combined set of Talkers® monitors electrical Current, Pressure and Flow, and maintains a history of individual results in real time. This group is being installed for use in Energy Audit applications by one of MachineTalker's OEMs, Sense-Comm Technologies, LLC.

GreenTalkers are being offered in response to the international power generation and distribution industry's surging demand for Energy Audit as a means to better utilize existing energy sources and to prepare us to more efficiently use new and cleaner sources of power, thereby reducing the carbon footprint of the power generating industries.

The Energy Audit (EA) market encompasses many different disciplines that are converging to conserve and distribute power, whether generated by wind, solar, coal, nuclear or hydro. The first of the EA markets moving toward economic viability is the power usage monitoring sector. Heavy power consuming industries are being granted credits and rebates if they can demonstrate that they are operating more efficiently than indicated by a simple meter. Credits coming back to the companies are substantial, running to the hundreds of thousands of dollars for large companies.

Recently, Energy Audit techniques involved bulky, wired, sensor equipment that was nearly cost-prohibitive to install. The efficiencies that were hoped to be gained by real-time monitoring of energy usage were severely diminished due to the expense associated with installing these monitoring devices.

However, compared to the old, "wired" means of connecting sensors for the Energy Audit process, installing GreenTalkers is a snap. Talkers automatically establish a wireless mesh networking "community", relaying information to each other collectively, all coordinated by Java-based display/control software running in a master audit computer system. Each Talker can be directed to establish control parameters, maintain data logs, compare results and send alerts if events dictate. The GreenTalkers are programmable and sensor independent, meaning that almost any type of sensor selected by the user can be serviced by a Talker. This means more processes can be monitored at a much lower cost.

Roland F. Bryan, MachineTalker's CEO, said, "We are excited by the successful work that our OEM, Sense-Comm, is doing to introduce this most efficient means to conduct the energy audit process. As North American, Asian and European operations continue to accelerate demand for devices that collect, manage and disseminate information relating to energy management, we expect to deliver significant market share increases to our shareholders."
