Unbelievable! $500,000 funded and all thanks to you, backers! We never imagined Pressy could rise so high and be backed by more than 21,000 people! We want to thank you all for supporting us and spreading the word - you're amazing.

We have numerous updates for you this time, so, here it goes:

  • First of all, the $500K stretch goal was met! That means Pressy-To-Talk will come to life! We would like to announce that we teamed up with a huge player in the VoIP market (still can't tell you who...but we promise they exist!) that agreed to work with us to make Pressy-To-Talk happen. No delays are expected in delivery, so...no worries!
  • The "When I Get My Pressy I'm Gonna Use It For..." forum in our website is live! This is the place for you to share your ideas on what to do with Pressy and how to improve it. You will also be able to vote for other ideas that you liked. As a bonus for your cooperation, 
  • We wish to announce another cool co-op with Apkudo. Apkudo specializes in testing Android apps and phones on large scales. They just introduced "Apkudo Approved for Accessories" which is intended to be the gold standard in Android accessories testing. They test for compatibility, usability and performance over hundreds of different devices and in every possible scenario. Now, that's just awesome. Amazingly, Pressy will be one of the first lucky accessories to go through these tests. That's to ensure that you get the best possible experience using it, no matter what device you are using or what you are using it for.

      Hi there. I'm one of your backers and I'd like to congratulate you on meeting your target - and beyond! Just a quick question, I'm new to Kickstarter, in fact, it was your project that made me sign on. You're the first kickstarter project I funded. Thing is, I need to change my shipping address. May I know how to go about it? Sorry if this is a silly question that belongs in some forum. I tried googling it and I am really quite lost with this.

      @(everyone asking about multiples) They have said more then once that all you have to do is pledge for what you want, and the survey will sort it out. So if you want a basic Pressy with key-chain and a color Pressy with key-chain? Then pledge $20 + $25 = $45

      Don't forget to add a $5 shipping fee ONCE if you are outside the US.

      @tyfung - Yes, you can pledge to get any combination of deals/rewards.

      *Creator Nimrod Back on Sep 9*
      @Ignasi Vives - it's $50 for two Pressys + $5 shipment fee - A total of $55

      (and others, they have talked about it multiple times)

    3. Creator Ron Meyers on September 25, 2013

      Is there a Kickstarter rule on ordering multiple units?

    4. Creator O.D. van de Veer on September 25, 2013

      @Jason, just go to manage my pledge button (on right side, just under the remaining days) and change your pledge to a $20 one

    5. Creator Jason Campbell on September 23, 2013

      When I made my pledge "The Basic" I thought the key chain was part of the product. Can I up my pledge to get the keychain?
      Thanks

      btw, you could investigate if a "walkie-talkie" set ,that bundles two pressys, would be possible. that surely can't be against the kickstarter rules, now that there is a plausible reason two have two pressys? (that would be like a kickstarter project for a pair of shoes or socks, only being able to sell one and not the other half.). there are plenty of projects out there offering several of the same items (usb cables, cups, bowls, bulbs, spirit steels/rocks, playing cards)

    7. Creator Dr. Z. V. on September 18, 2013

      With 25 more days to go, I think $1M is a feasible goal.

    8. Creator Dr. Z. V. on September 18, 2013

      I'd be interested in getting a second one too.

    9. Creator Malcolm on September 18, 2013

      how can i pledge for two? do I just double my pledge and you will have a question in your survey after funding is compledet (this is how most projects deal with the matter)

      Bets on making a Million $?! I think so!!

      I like the NFC idea.

    13. Creator Jeremie Lariviere on September 18, 2013

      Great to hear about the device testing!

    14. Creator John A. Wilmot Jr. on September 18, 2013

      Everyone who wants more then one....ONLY WAY TO GET ANOTHER ONE IS TO OPEN ANOTHER KICKSTARTER ACCOUNT WITH A DIFFERENT EMAIL ADDRESS!! I have done this for other projects.

    15. Creator Donald Kurtak` on September 18, 2013

      @ Adam Hicks - That Easy-Macro is pretty awesome too!

    16. Creator Paul Brock on September 18, 2013

      A bit confused about PTT. Do both parties need Pressy??

      Confusion comes as has been described as similar to walkie talkie when each person needs to push button to talk.

      Or does it open a link like Skype which once opened allows both people to talk without any further action??

    17. Creator Douglas Raybeck on September 18, 2013

      Don't surprised at your success. A great idea warrants a great response.

    18. Creator Scott Thompson on September 18, 2013

      How can I order two units? And is the plural of "pressy" "pressies?" "Pressys?"

    19. Creator Nimrod Back on September 18, 2013

      @Ryan - I missed a line there, get in to the link and you will understand. sorry and thanks!

      Great job guys! I knew this was going to be huge when I first saw it!

    21. Creator Andrew - Armikrog Army on September 18, 2013

      Posted my idea by improving key chain to be used as pressy deattacher instean of nails :D
      Vote for it :)

    22. Creator Ryan Neary on September 18, 2013

      "As a bonus for your cooperation, ..."

      What is the bonus? Just wondering!

    23. Creator Peter Fox on September 18, 2013

      I'm happy this device helps someone like Donal Kurtak, who is visually impaired.

    24. Creator Shabbir Siraj on September 18, 2013

      With a great product like this, it is hard not to appreciate the idea behind it and its scope.

      It's also a given that with Pressy's brilliant usability, the word of mouth has given it a deserving place at the top of tech projects on KS.

      Excellent work guys!

    25. Creator Donald Kurtak` on September 18, 2013

      As a visually impaired user, my primary use for Pressy will be to quickly access the accessibility functions on my phone, but I'm certain that I will also find many other uses as well. Using a strictly touch sensitive device is very cumbersome when you can't see the display, so a physical button will make my phone MUCH more usable!

    26. Creator John Kempf on September 18, 2013

      Will Pressy-To-Talk also be available when using headphones like the other functions?

    27. Creator Fritz D on September 18, 2013

      Yey great to hear .. Hope it works flawlessly with note 3
