Flic is cool. It's also a button. A button that pairs with an action on your iPhone. You can have three actions paired with the device that you activate by a click, double click, or a hold. It can do things like control smartlights with one touch, take a photo remotely, call your phone for you, send a pre-setup distress message in case of emergency, and just about anything else, too. Pranav Kosurim (below), cofounder and CCO of Shortcut Labs, showed me the device. He's pointing to it in this photo. Note that it's wearable. Fun fact: I almost called his mother on Skype when he foolishly let me hold his own Flic. It was set to call his mom with two taps, and I didn't realize the one he was wearing was live.
