Created by Smiirl, a design studio in Paris, Fliike is a physical ‘likes’ counter that shows a brand’s growing social popularity. The gadget features a flip-board type display and can be easily mounted on a wall, or behind a storefront. To set it up you just have to connect the device to a wireless network, and then go to the Smiirl website to register your Facebook page. For now only a limited number of the devices are available for preorder at approximately £255, and will ship at the end of November.

Like many products we’ve featured recently – such as the Social Stock Ticker, or #FLOCK – Fliike harnesses the power of social media by creatively merging the digital and physical worlds.
