Add a magnet sticker to flick
It'd be nice to have a magnet on flick. This would allow us to put flick on boards, walls, fridges.... and many more.
We're developing a waterproof case for Flic with a magnetic base. It should be available soon.
Wouldn't a magnet affect the Bluetooth connection?
Just a quick comment to add on to this idea.
The double sided tape that would be used for the back of the base should be provided separately and not already stuck on. WIth my Echo remote, it came with a piece of double sided tape separate. Which was perfect for me because I just mount the base to the metal fridge, so i don't need the sticky part.
This is one of the flaws I've found on the flic. It should have come separate. I usually keep my flic in my pocket when I'm out and about. So it's annoying to have that piece of plastic covering the sticky part on back.
Yeah, Like I said, I just use cheap magnets that I bought online and they work fine, but I still think this is a base they could make and people would buy it. Just would be nice to have something that matched the sleek look of the flic, rather than using a generic commercial item.
There are commercial stuff like this: magnet with self sticky on one side. Buy one and live happy!
And maybe a plain flat back for the Flic to accompany it. I never use the sticky portion on mine, and the clip is inconvenient for me personally. I usually just keep it in my pocket, or I use small neodymium magnets stuck to the wall to temporarily mount it places around the house.
Make a magnetic base for the flic. This will work with the flic without requiring any design changes as it will attract the battery, the base just has to fit the flic. It would be sticky on one side, and magnetic on the other.
This base could be used/mounted in two ways...since it has a magnet, it could be mounted to anything metal/magnetic (sorry SS fridge owners...lol). And the sticky portion could be mounted to anything non-magnetic.
This idea is derived from the remote holder for the Amazon Echo. It is sticky on the back, but the magnets are strong enough to use them as mounts on anything magnetic as well as hold the remote.

I suppose this is impossible due to the magnet next of the hardware ?
Thanks Max for the idea! You can stick Flic pretty much anywhere using the stickable dot on the back. It is reuseable just like a magnet. Is there any where you'd rather use a magnet and why?
