They fliike me! They really fliike me!

They fliike me! They really fliike me!

Smiirl – Quentin Ducros

Do you know a business or marketing department who could benefit from real-time reassurances of their awesomeness? You might want to treat them to a ‘fliike’ Facebook like counter.

Created by Smiirl (who say they are a passionate team working hard to give internet a tangible reality) the Fliike device hooks up to the web and the company’s Facebook page and then ticks over whenever they get a new ‘like’.

A limited run of 500 of the retro-styled devices will be released at the end of this year costing 300€ each, which can be pre-ordered here.
