Ni Hao Backers!


We arrived back in one piece from China, where we visited the factories that will be making those precious Pressys (Nimrod had to stay home to handle the paper work...).

Here are some photos, check out our Instagram feed for many more.

Things are progressing according to schedule so far, so in case no disasters happen we expect to deliver on time.

We are currently working on the Pressy-To-Talk feature that you earned when Pressy met the $500K stretch goal. As we already mentioned we have a huge partner that will provide the infrastructure for it, still can't say who, but if you promise to be good we might reveal it in the next update.

We didn't take your addresses and choice of Pressy yet - don't worry, we'll send you a survey in a few weeks in which you'll be able to input all your details, no one will be left behind.

We have encountered a few counterfeiters who try to sell Pressy online as their own. Until we officially launch Pressy and you get yours you can be sure that those Pressys are fake. They do not give access to the Pressy app and they probably don't even work. If you find a Pressy dealer anywhere on the net please do let us know, and we'll unleash our lawyers on them.

Finally, we are aware that some of you wish to receive more frequent updates about the project's progress. Since there are more than 28,000 people who receive this email each time we post an update we try not to spam you too much. Those of you who wish to stay up to date more often can like our page, where we post updates almost every day. 

Take care until next time,

The Pressy Team.

      @Scott Campbell: You don't need to be rooted to use Tasker...

      Please make pressy work with Tasker, so I can make it do just about anything. Tasker is a great app for rooted Android users that lets us automate a ton of actions.

      Communication every week or other week is good for me. I only get concerned if Kickstarter projects go more than three weeks without an update. I wouldn't complain about more frequent updates, but I do realize you're very busy.

      Thanks for your update~

      Personally I think weekly updates for a product like this are a bit much, especially this far out from delivery. Every 2 weeks seems to be closer to the norm until you're 4ish weeks from shipping. Then weekly would be nice.

      I don't, and won't use foolbook ... post your updates to Google+ and/or twitter like normal android users :-)

      As I understood - it's possible to use your app with headphones button as well. It's it possible to give it to the backers in advance, so we don't have to wait till Spring for the Button?

      Please use for survey the it make it for us easy to change address o if you want to get an add on. For you it will be easier to handle.

      perhaps you could give a weekly progress update on kickstarter? compromise? :-)

      "humor" conquers all! :)

      Roll with it! Know it..... been there - just in the lingo! :)

    14. Wim Jansen

      Hmm.. I think JJ was making a joke; as in "Chinatown"...

    15. Glib Shpychka on

      @Nimrod is it going to be 0.7mm? Because from this pic it doesn't seem like it:

      @JJ China is a country, not a town :D

    16. Vit Schwarzbrunn on

      I think more frequent updates would be great. And the number of backers has nothing to do with spamming. every single backer still gets only one mail with an update. Regardless there are 28000 or 200. Still every backer gets one update per one update posted...

    17. Rory Glynn on

      Not a fan of Facebook, especially for news:
      How about a blog so I can subscribe to an RSS feed?
      You could have the blog re-post to Facebook.

    18. Neal Jacob on

      Ditto what JJ said. I'd like more updates via Kickstarter vs. doing it on Facebook.

    19. Joshua Johnson on

      Awesome! Will it still be possible to add the key chain to an order if we didn't do so in our original backers pledge?

    20. Luis Mario Álvarez on

      Well I thought you were going to ask me about my t-shirt size and address along with this update lol as you said so in your last post a few weeks ago.
      Anyway, really happy everything is going well and on time.

      Hi - guys - still would love the comments to be kept in the loop - not a FB user and I feel this community is small er and more exclusive. Hope you will consider this and cross post. I love China great tow !! :) Good luck with production!!
