Don’t you just wish you could do anything you wanted at the touch of a button? Well now you can.
Flic is a button, available in multiple colours, that you can stick to any flat surface with an adhesive disc. It works with your iPhone or Android device to create shortcuts to lots of popular functions, and we absolutely love it.
There’s no limit to the number of Flics you can have, and the batteries should last for 5 years because they’re technically off until they’re pressed. Depending on how you press the button (press once, double click, hold) it can even perform different functions, so maybe you could call three different people from one button, or go back a song, forward one, or pause the music of your favourite album.
And the functions don’t stop at music and phonecalls. You can do almost anything, from switching lights on or controlling the mood lighting in your house, to sending a distress signal if you’re in trouble, to turning on the navigator in your car so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road. Best of all, the geniuses behind Flic are working on other ways to use the colourful buttons, and there’s also a developer kit available to integrate them with other services.
The project is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo, and hopes to have its first products sent to the public by March 2015. Watch the video below to find out more, and tell us what you think!
