We carry our smartphones around with us almost always, because they can perform so many things. But sometimes they become a real burden, especially when having to perform the same actions every day. Flic is a wireless button that creates a shortcut to your favorite actions on your phone, thus trying to reduce our non-stop dependency.
Flic creates a shortcut to your favorite actions, so you don’t even have to touch your phone. By using Flic, you can create a shortcut to call a cab, share your location if you’re in distress, or just turn the lights on. It also allows users to control lights, play music, take pictures, use it a snooze button or even to find your phone.
Since it’s so small, Flic can be installed just anywhere you need it to be. For example, in your car, where it could launch navigation to your next appointment, text your loved ones or activate Shazam. Flic makes use of the Bluetooth Smart Technology and is available up to a 150 feet range. It is weather and dust resistant and its battery is said to resist for up to 5 years of battery life. Users can assign 3 different functions per one Flic unit.
At the moment, the device is compatible with iPhone 4s & later, iPad 3rd generation & later and select Android devices with 4.3 and later with Bluetooth 4.0. The guys behind Flic have already managed to gather more than $111,000, which represents 140% of their $80,000 goal with 46 days still remaining.
You can get one Flic unit for just $23 with an estimated delivery in March, 2015, but this offer is limited to 500 orders, and it will increase to $27 once all these are gone. For $49, you can get two Flic units for $89 you will get 4.
