Pressy, "The Almighty Android Button"

Posted on the 03 September 2013 by The_kian @the_kian
Most famous Kickstarter campaigns all share some crazy high of raising outlandish sums of money to create some next gen android consoley shit and it takes months or years to get to the target. Well, Pressy still had a pretty high goal of $40,000 (£25,682) managed to get an outstanding $60,000 (£38,523) in one day alone.
Pressy, Yes. They destroyed their goal by over £10,000 in one, single day.
So, why all the hype?  Pressy is an accessory that plugs into the 3.5mm headphone jack on your phone, giving you the ability to “perform your favorite and most common actions with a simple, intuitive physical button.” The free Pressy application that comes with it allows you to configure custom actions based on a variety of button press sequences. Using Pressy, you could launch your camera and take a picture with two short presses of the button, or call your mates with one short press and two long presses. If like me, you use headphones with your headphone port, fear not. The Pressy app can also be used with the in-line button on your headphones. So it also works as an app for use with headphones, wonderful.    All of the “early bird” Kickstarter deals for Pressy have already sold out, but you can still grab one for as little as a tenner. With so much funding, the Nimrod Back team should have no issues getting the product manufactured in the 4 month time-frame they have set for themselves.
The currently have 16,135 backers, £245,969 raised and 41 days to go! If you would like to back the project click here to get to the Kickstarter page
