Happy Holidays dear backers!

In the spirit of this magical season, we decided to treat you guys in order to show some gratitude for helping us make a dream come true. We made a special holiday e-card web app that you can use to greet your friends and family a happy holiday, plus, you'll be able to add a Pressy gift card to it! Go ahead and share some holidays love.

Samples Starting to Arrive

Now for some serious stuff: We have three different manufacturers working to get Pressy out to you as soon as possible. Today we received our first working sample, and it works amazing! The final shape and look may change of course, but the main mechanism is almost finalized and we couldn't be happier with the results.

Take a look at this beauty: 

We'll post a video in an update next week so you could see it in action with the brand new Pressy SDK. In the meanwhile tune into our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to see more photos.

Pressy at CES 2014

Yes, it’s happening, Pressy will have it’s own booth at the world’s biggest consumer electronics show in Vegas this January! Don’t expect a $695K joint though, we’re still on a lean budget, so keeping it modest. You’re more than welcome to come and say hi! Naturally, we now have an open position for 3-5 official Pressy booth models (will be payed with Pressys ;) ).

Write it down: Eureka Park, Booth #75005. See you there!

"Wait! What about the survey?!"

You're absolutely right, we have been delaying the survey due to bureaucracy issues, we're truly sorry. In the next update that will be posted next week we'll tell you all about it. It's coming soon, we promise, pinky promise!

Cheers,

The Pressy Squad.

      The sample unit looks great! I'm a little shocked people are actually unaware of what this doesn't work with...it took all of 30 seconds skimming the Kickstarter page to reveal exactly that.

      @Douglas please send us an email to info@pressybutton.com. We need a few details and we'll issue a refund right away.
      @Scott Culton You are right! Can't trust those CES reps. Please note everyone - The booth number is #75505, not #75005 as mentioned before! Thanks for the heads up Scott!
      @Glib, as for now we don't expect any delays, things working as we expected...

      Thanks for the update. It's always nice to be remembered. I know not all Kickstand project's remember to do updates and it feels like once they get your monies they just don't care! Thanks again. Looking forward to using it on my phone as well as tablets!!!

      Creator Simon Huwyler on December 12

      @Douglas: According to the FAQ Pressy is not compatible with IOS and won't ever be. But as the creators were always transparent about this, I don't think they will have to give you a refund. Maybe if you very _politely_ ask them, if they would.....

      I have a question: I don't have an Android tablet; I have the new Apple IPad AIR. Will Pressy work with it? If not, I will have to request a refund of my pledge. Please advise.

      Thanks,
      Doug Walsh

      Looking forward to meeting you at CES. Just adding it to myCES planner on the CES website and it has you guys listed on booth #75505, not 75005.

      see you guys at CES! no chance to pick up mine at the booth? look for a guy w/ a molle chest rig w/ gopro, probably a neon green polo shirt

      I can't wait to see it in my mailbox. I also mentionned it to a TV show in Montreal (les NerdZ), and one of them is usually attending CES and other tech shows. Hopefully they will mention it in their show. It would be even better if I would get mine in the mail before they talk about it on the TV.

      Thanks for the update! Getting tempted to go to CES now. Too many of my backed projects are going to be there. Might be a good way for me to see what I bought. Hmmmm.....
