Flic

Flic is a small wireless button that you can stick anywhere.

 

Imagine a universal button that can stick anywhere and work like an extension of your arm to your mobile phone, for everything you want to do. Imagine to be able to dim the lights, turn the TV on and at the same time order a pizza, all with the press of a button.
Does that sound too good to be true? Flic makes it possible!
Together with Shortcut Labs, we at WSI developed the hardware inside the Flic. It bundles all your favourite apps and more into one tiny button that you can take with you wherever you go.

What does Amir Sharifat from Shortcut Labs have to say?

WSI_Flic_Amir“Simple solutions are needed for communicating with all the smart functions in our mobile phones”, says Amir Sharifat, one of the founders of Shortcut Labs.
Together with WSI the company developed Flic. The small Flic button is only the size of a 5 kroner coin. Flic centralises and simplifies access to all smart functions in the mobile phone. And the button can even be used as an alarm.

 

“We are currently very limited by our displays. The way we use apps and Smartphones is going to change. Flic demonstrates that it’s possible to steer apps and displays in a whole new way. Thanks to our collaboration with WSI, Flic’s technology and final product are the first of its kind. Flic is perfectly suited for global distribution and the response so far has been overwhelming”, Amir Sharifat says proudly.

Did you know..?

Fact about the Flic.

…it costs you about 8 USD per year to have a light bulb on for three hours every day? You might not think that’s much.
