About this project
Flipp has two sides, one for volume and one for songs & playlists. Rotating the volume side adjusts the volume. Rotating the control side let’s you skip through your songs. If you press and rotate at the same time you get to move through your playlists. Clicking on Flipp is always play/pause no matter what side you are on.
The Flipp remote lasts for two years with no need for recharging. This is thanks to the hub. So thanks to the hub, you don’t need yet another tangled charger in your home.
We considered connecting Flipp directly to WiFi. But this requires power, a lot of power. A portable WiFi remote like this would only last for days before needing to recharge.
Another option we didn’t choose was to let Flipp connect to your phone. We just don’t like the idea of loosing control of the music as soon as the phone is out of reach. Not very nice!
So when you boil it down, the Flipp hub is really the reason for Flipp being so simple and easy to use.
More than one speaker? No problem, you can use multiple remotes and assign them to groups or specific speakers. No need to get multiple hubs.
The distance between a remote and the hub can be up to 90meters. And if this is not enough range it is possible to use multiple hubs to extend the range.
Don’t be fooled by Flipp's simple and playful exterior.
Flipp is simple but contains state of the art technology in an incredibly slim exterior. It rotates on a custom bearing for silky smooth rotation, and magnets make each song skip and each volume level snap in place with a distinct feeling. The proprietary 2,4GHz connection means that we can achieve two years of battery life from a single coin-cell battery. Because who has time to charge their remote?

We have gone through tons of prototypes to get to where we are today. Below is a snippet of our process that has led us to this Kickstarter campaign.
Flipp is the first project we are embarking upon here at SYNT. We are a young company but we are ambitious and backed by giants.
SYNT is a Copenhagen (Denmark) based startup that creates startups. We are an incubator and accelerator fuelled by ideas from Above Agency, a global design and innovation leader based in Sweden.
Here at SYNT we are passionate about cool tech stuff and turning connected products into life.
Yes, we are new at the crowdfunding scene, but design and manufacturing is not new to us. In our team we have some of the most experienced people within design and manufacturing you can find in Scandinavia. Lately Above Agency launched dbub at Kickstarter with great success.
We at SYNT have made a very agile and ambitious project plan of how fast we can get Flipp out to all of you guys, our backers. We promise we will do our best in the process and can’t wait to get started turning Flipp into a real product that can deliver a true and simple music experience.
