Shortcut Labs AB


"To make digital services more accessible and easy to use with physical controllers that anyone can use and understand.

We make technology which simplifies life and empowers all people, not just the most interested."

What We Stand For

Technology should be easy to use and understand! That's why we value simplicity above all else.

It dictates how we think, how we design our products, and how we work. By keeping this as our leading star, we hope to create a more connected world where all can enjoy it’s benefits easily.


Our belief is that technology and innovation must coexist harmoniously with nature to prosper.

Hence, our commitment is to minimise our environmental footprint with intergrated sustainable practices in every facet of our operation.


For us, this means that everyone should get to enjoy technology's benefits; regardless of ability, age, location...

A smartphone app with functions behind a locked screen is not accessible for all. A physical representation of an app interaction can be however.


We pride ourselves in being creative and innovative people, and wish to empower others to be as well.

Therefore, we make products with few limitations, providing open and transparent APIs so that anyone can use the products for creative projects and innovative businesses.

Our Story

Shorcut Labs AB was founded in 2013. We started as an Incubator at KTH innovation where we created Flic, the first Smart Button in the world. Shortly after we launched Flic on Indiegogo and broke the funding record for all Nordic crowdfunding campaigns.

In 2019, we redesigned our original button and created Flic Button, which was much more sustainable and gave customers a better experience.

From there we started to integrate with big smart home players while also expanding our B2B business to hospitality, healthcare and so many more industries.
