      Hello Folks, a few updates and then personal messages:

      We should be getting the new and improved models by the end of this week. In case there is nothing wrong with those we should start assembling the production line. From the time it is up it’ll take only a few days to produce thousands of Pressys. We have designed a new and improved keychain which will be included in the rewards you will get. It will be able to latch onto the earphones cable as well as your keychain.
      Regarding the Indiegogo campaign, we are aware of it and are considering legal options to take it down. Thanks to all of you who pointed our attention towards this issue. As for now it does not seem like it’s taking off anyhow...

      @Larry there is no need to file a dispute, if you wish to get a full refund you can write us an email and we’ll take care of that in no time.
      @Samuel Woo please send an email to and we’ll take care of that.
      @Benjamin there will be no silver version as for now, it’s just the samples with no paint.

    2. Creator Joel Amaro on March 24, 2014

      Update? Been a long while!

    3. Creator David on March 24, 2014

      @DC Govier: You are mistaking Copyright and Patent. The DMCA means, for example, if the ShutIt folks had used the Pressy video, the Pressy folks could request that it be taken down.

      But for a physical product, patent applies, and independent invention is possible, although not an accepted "defense". But that is only enforceable after the patent is granted.

    4. Creator Lars Albrecht on March 24, 2014

      Is an update out there?

    5. Creator Mauro Casanova on March 24, 2014

      Update please? I'd love to know what you are up to.

    6. Creator Thomas R Aus B on March 23, 2014

      Twitter update was 5. march. nothing new since then.

    7. Creator Thomas-Oliver Neye on March 23, 2014

      I´m waiting and waiting and waiting.
      Where is my Pressy?

    8. Creator Paul Brock on March 23, 2014

      Would be nice to have a comprehensive update as to where they are currently. For example is the software finished? It should be but there has been no mention of this. How is the compatibility checking going along?? So far they have only mentioned hardware issues that they want to improve.

      No recent updates on Facebook, not sure about Twitter as this is currently banned here in Turkey so cannot access.

    9. Creator Bryan Walshe on March 23, 2014

      I am beginning to think we have been had and Nimrod Back if that is his name is on a beach sunning himself. There is no contact from them in 5 weeks, does this not get you worried.

    10. Creator Brian Spiegel on March 22, 2014

      Chris I completely agree but an update would still be nice!

    11. Creator Gibson Chiew on March 22, 2014

      slightly more than a month since the last update.
      maybe an update on the on-goings at your end would be nice.

    12. Creator Niranjan on March 21, 2014

      any update on production guys???

    13. Creator Chris Maser on March 21, 2014

      And I quote, from a mere fortnight ago,
      "Our goal at the moment is to delivery the product as fast as we can, but more important, to deliver the BEST product we can. This is why we are delaying the production in order to refine Pressy and make sure it will not fail after a few months of usage, get pressed by mistake, damage your phone, fall easily out of the keychain and get lost, and many other issues that needs handling. We're really sorry for the delays, and we're doing our best to speed things up."

      I'd rather have a well made project that ships late than some garbage shipped early.

    14. Creator Don Gateley on March 20, 2014

      Yet another bunch of KS grifters? Something needs to be done about KS.

    15. Creator Thomas R Aus B on March 20, 2014

      Update pls! This is how get safisfied customers!

    16. Creator Benjamin Noyles on March 20, 2014

      how can i make my order the new silver model and when are these gonna be sent out already?!

    17. Creator Brian Spiegel on March 19, 2014

      Been over a month...can we get another update? Please?!

    18. Creator Ronald Huskey on March 19, 2014

      This isn't really happening, is it? My contract is going to be up before I get this thing.

    19. Creator Tom Calisti on March 19, 2014

      what's up? !!!

    20. Creator Jakub Grzeszczuk on March 19, 2014

      about the notification system - You cannot be more right :D
      about importance of contact between backers and creators - yup, that is exactly what I meant, also couldn't agree more about filing the credit card claim - we are not being "cheated" - we backed an idea, and true, we have to be patient... but! we still want to hear from the pressy team!
      so... pressy! please, let us know, what is up!

    21. Creator Gary Keeler on March 18, 2014


      I couldn't agree more, I was just trying to say that filing a claim with your Credit Card company wouldn't go anywhere since we funded a product idea. Communication, even just to say "there isn't anything we can say" is very important to a project. I don't think enough project creators realize that while they may be busy and the project is moving forward, unless they tell us about it we end up thinking the project has stalled.

      On a side note, Kickstarter really needs to get a comment notification system set up so we actually get notified when we're talking to each other.

    23. Creator Karl Schmidt on March 18, 2014

      it was posted last month that delivery is delayed until mid April

    24. Creator Daniel on March 18, 2014

      It's ok mark. Made me laugh a little so no issues here ^.^

    25. Creator Mark on March 18, 2014

      Oops I posted the question about charging in the wrong place. What a donut :)

    26. Creator Daniel on March 17, 2014

      @mark I don't think you can charge this through USB :( I'm very sorry.

      I will say I'm with everyone else and just a little weekly "hey this is what up" would be nice. But this talk about a refund is kinda a bit out there... It's supposed to be done in March as an ESTIMATED date, does everyone know what that means?
      Anyways lets just all be happy and excited ^.^

    27. Creator Mark on March 17, 2014

      Does anyone know if you can charge the copter via USB? Or do I need to buy an adapter?

    28. Creator Jakub Grzeszczuk on March 17, 2014

      @Gary, on one hand - You are right. but on the other - bringing Your idea to KickStarter You have to remember that it's a socially driven platform, therefore You should act according to social requirements - for example I am not asking for ETA, or rushing the creators of Pressy! no, I'd just like them to remember, thanks to whom their idea became reality and simply keep us, backers, updated. that is all.

    29. Creator Gary Keeler on March 16, 2014

      @larry while I understand being anxious to receive a cool product, if you file a dispute you won't get very far. Technically we are funding an idea and getting a product as a bonus. The estimated delivery date is just that, an estimate. My advice is to relax and enjoy being part of making a cool product a reality. There are always some bumps along the road.

    30. Creator Scott Kostric on March 16, 2014

      They advertised a delivery date of March and its still March so i don't think you would get very far!
      An update would be nice tho, maybe its nearly ready to ship!

    31. Creator Larry Flaxman on March 16, 2014

      Any updates on this? I'm seriously considering filing a dispute with my cc company due to the fact that this funded back in October... and it's now almost April... with NO product in hand.

    32. Creator Chris M Smalley on March 16, 2014

      yes ..some kind of update would be great

    33. Creator AzMean Sam on March 16, 2014

      any update would be nice.

    34. Creator krupal Tudiya on March 14, 2014

      hey guys
      we are waiting for update
      plz, give some update

    35. Creator Jakub Grzeszczuk on March 12, 2014

      Dear @Pressy... You really shouldn't keep us in the dark for so long - You managed to make quite a profit with all of us backers, and all we need to keep us happy is at least to stay in the loop! Keep us updated, please! :)

    36. Creator Samuel Woo on March 11, 2014

      Hi there, I am planning to move in early April, could you please send me PM so that I can get you to update my registered address?


    37. Creator Brian on March 9, 2014

      shipping update?

    38. Creator Nimrod Back on March 6, 2014

      @Mike, @John our records show that you have already filled out the survey, please go to to make sure that it's all correct. Everyone else who is not sure can recheck too. Please mind - the only survey we sent is the Backerkit survey that was sent be email to you a few months ago. No Kickstarter survey has been sent through the Kickstarter website.
      @Eric Ramirez luckily for us we already got all the PR we could use during the campaign, and that's mainly thanks to all our backers who supported us. Our goal at the moment is to delivery the product as fast as we can, but more important, to deliver the BEST product we can. This is why we are delaying the production in order to refine Pressy and make sure it will not fail after a few months of usage, get pressed by mistake, damage your phone, fall easily out of the keychain and get lost, and many other issues that needs handling. We're really sorry for the delays, and we're doing our best to speed things up.
      @Barnaby you can change your shipping address by logging in to the backerkit survey, if you don't know how send us a message to and we'll guide you through it.

    39. Creator Low Chong Hung on March 6, 2014

    44. Creator Barnaby Fisher-Smith on March 4, 2014

      Hello. I need to change my address for the pressy delivery. Is it possible to do it now or will an email go out just before they are shipped?
      Kind regards, Barnaby
