Flic Universal adds a completely new range of possibilities by making your Flic 2 mimic other kinds of Bluetooth devices, such as computer keyboards, mice or music instruments.
HID stands for Human Interface Device and includes most standard peripherals as computer keyboards, mice and gamepads. This means that you can configure your Flic 2 to act as any of these devices and you will be able to connect it to anything that supports Bluetooth HID.
This includes Windows, mac OS and Linux computers as well as iOS and Android phones and tablets.
MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface and is used in musical equipment such as music keyboards, foot switches, drum pads, etc.
To further extend the use of having a Flic connected as a HID or MIDI device it is also possible to execute key combinations and sequences. For example, if you want to start an application on Windows, you press [Win + R] to open the “Run” dialogue and then type “https://google.se” to open up a browser with this address.
Having a Flic in Universal mode can be thought of as having a wireless one-button keyboard. Here are some examples to get your creativity flowing!
- Google Meets Mute Toggle
- Presentation Clicker
- Counter Strike Auto Buy
- Record Button for Logic Pro
- Foot Switch for JamUp
