Hi backers, your Pressy have never been closer. We just got back from China (again), where we supervised the the production line and we're happy to announce that it looks great!

And now the news we've all been waiting for - production has begun, and in the next two weeks we are going to manufacture more than 40,000 buttons! Hopefully delivery will begin at the 28th this month. your Pressy should arrive in mid May.

.... 39,995 to go
.... 39,995 to go

Improved Keychain

We upgraded the original design to add a new functionality, now you will be able to store your Pressy on your keychain as well as your headset wire.

Survey

Since shipping date almost arrived we will lock down the surveys to any changes at the 17th this week so if any of you moved or wish to add any add-ons in a special price - now's the time! Those who didn't answer the survey yet will get a reminder email from us, if you didn't get one you're good to go!

In order to log in to the survey use the link you got in the email from us a way back. In case you lost it, use this one to restore your account.

Copycats

We knew from the beginning that we will have copycats, luckily we have a patent and intend to squash them soon. Additionally, in order to use the Pressy app you will need an original Pressy button. And the most importantly - we are doing our best to make Pressy the best product we can, and it will be. 

Thanks again!

      Correction:
      I apologize the forthrightness but it seems to be getting increasing difficult for you to overcome your setbacks WITHOUT getting some additional support and help.

    2. Creator Rohit on June 1, 2014

      This is absolutely disappointing. The delayed shipment (due to legitimate setbacks) is understandable. But no communication is inexplicable. It is unreasonable to make a promise for delivery and not update for over a month!
      People select a project because they passionately believe in the project and want it to succeed. If possible they would even help beyond just funding it.
      Can you please help us understand the setbacks you are suffering? Maybe some of your funders might have experience with it and might be able to help you.

      I apologize the forthrightness but it seems to be getting increasing difficult for you to overcome your setbacks with getting some additional support and help.

    3. Creator Robert Dunn on May 14, 2014

      I don't believe I ever received the survey... Any one else have this problem?

    4. Creator Daniel Eaton on May 14, 2014

      I thought we were going to get the app to start using with the button on our headphones prior to the hardware arriving. Where is an update on *that*? I can understand hardware delays and the need for good quality, but the software side is not dependent on that and should have been ready for the original ship date.

    5. Creator Remco Smit on May 14, 2014

      Holy shit some people here need to stop whining. Your crying and begging for a refund (lol!) isn't gonna do anything. Just wait. Maybe message them on Facebook or so

    6. Creator Steve Wang on May 14, 2014

      hmm...It's been a month since the last update. Has there been a delay?

    7. Creator Chris Krieter on May 14, 2014

      Hardware is obviously delayed (again)...but hardware is only half the equation here. What about the Pressy app? Is that ready to go for when hardware does ship?

    8. Creator Benedict Chew on May 14, 2014

      Come on pressy ! I had such high hopes! Just update us on something....... ANYTHING!

    9. Creator Derek Ernewein on May 14, 2014

      I would also like an update from Pressy.

    10. Creator Scott C. Kennedy on May 14, 2014

      The last update that was e-mailed to me was in March... I had to Google 'Pressy' to find THIS one. I was a bit bummed when the shipping date was pushed back to April, but I dealt with it. I was frustrated when it got pushed back another month, but again, I dealt with it. Now it's mid May and I still don't have my Pressy. I want a refund.

    11. Creator Pasquale Cobuzio on May 14, 2014

      WHERE IS MY PRESSY?? WHEREEEE??????

    12. Creator Lasse Knudsen on May 14, 2014

      Hi
      Where is my Pressy? A long time ago I was excited about having ordered a Pressy, I even told some of my friends about how cool it was. Now, I just feel like a fool.. Please change that by sending an update explaining where the Pressy has gone, as it seems you pressed it so much that you disappeared - not cool!

    13. Creator Frank on May 13, 2014

      So it's been another month with no communication. What is the problem? At this point the developers have $700, 000. $700,000 is a commitment not a hobby or a side project. It takes about 5 minutes to send an email update. It is the least you can do. Show a little respect to the people who supported you.

    14. Creator Jaime Diaz on May 13, 2014

      Lol, I had completely forgotten that I had backed this project up. I guess if I receive it, it will be a bonus. Good luck to everybody who is actually expecting this to ship. :)

    15. Creator Matt Goebel on May 13, 2014

      All these people want is an explanation for what happened to make you miss the ship date, or what you meant by shipping on the 28th (did you mean to us, or to you from the factory?). As long as it wasn't "we stole your money haha" I'm sure most of the people would be reasonable and accept your explanation and wait. However, not posting anything after seemingly promising a ship date and missing it is poor show at best and bad customer service at worst.

    16. Creator Ryan Kale on May 13, 2014

      I guess we shouldn't expect anything... So much for supporting kick starter projects

    17. Creator Ali Gadit on May 13, 2014

      I agree with my fellow backers here that we would all like un update.

    18. Creator Josh Mueller on May 12, 2014

      what the hell people

    19. Creator Michael Hammond on May 12, 2014

      Just give an update already - I mean, setbacks happen, machines break down, whatever..... just update us on progress. The last communication was 4/28/2014 for shipping .... now nothing .....

    20. Creator shelendra on May 12, 2014

      hi
      are you going to send us the tracking number?
      is this item is shipped or still waiting
      please update

      thanks

    21. Creator Stephan on May 12, 2014

      Yeah, the surveys went out months ago.

    22. Creator Kareem Sultan on May 10, 2014

      I never got the survey. Have those already gone out?

    23. Creator kani on May 10, 2014

      Any public updates? Are they fooling us?

    24. Creator Pascal Forget on May 9, 2014

      They haven't startet shipping. Got a private message from Nimrod Back, May 8, 2014:

      Hi Pascal
      Alive and kicking :)
      We hope to start shipping soon, within the next week or two, but the
      problem is that we depend on so many other parties that setbacks seem
      inevitable.
      Once we have a definitive date we will provide it, we just don't want to
      send a faulty product to people who have been so amazing in their support
      of us
      Let us know if you have anymore questions
      Oren

      Very disappointed that they did not made it a public update...

    25. Creator Henry Swantner on May 8, 2014

      Hey Pressy, could we get an update?
      The last comment a Pressy person made on this update was April 14. Since then communication FROM you has fallen dark.

      According to this update you should have already received the buttons and should be starting shipping to us. Mid-May starts on the 11th and last only until the 20th.
      Are you going to make that pledge to us?

    26. Creator Daniel on May 7, 2014

      When the week is over, and you didn't say that the pressy's are shipped, then i want a refund

    27. Creator Rick on May 7, 2014

      I decided to back your project because I thought it was a great idea and it deserved to be successful. The $42 I spent on the reward plus the add-on isn't the issue. I've lost a great deal more on my own self inflicted ideas.

      But your lack of communication exhibits either a tremendous stupidity on your part or you really are scammers and have a special spot in Hell reserved just for you.

      If you have failed at this endeavor, own up to your backers and say so. Otherwise let us know what's going on or take the consequences.
      If I don't see some kind of communication real soon, even if it's to say things are totally screwed up. I'll just turn it over to the fraud department of Visa and let them deal with you.

      Communicate!

    28. Creator B Alan Eisen on May 6, 2014

      A refund is looking better and better. One more week and if I don't have it, I will expect a refund. Sorry. You splattered your idea all across the internet, not us. Copycats are like fleas.

    29. Creator Andrea Pepoli on May 6, 2014

      Umh...no email...no message on the website....

    30. Creator Marcus Ong on May 6, 2014

      Pressy...not cool. You should punish the copycats and not your supporters. 2 weeks have passed since the latest promised delivery dates, and we don't even get a response. You are going to lose lots of faith, Pressy.

    31. Creator Musouka on May 5, 2014

      Hmm, why aren't these updates delivered by email? I still get email updates from my other backed projects. I have backed 6 projects and this is the only one that's not going according to plan. The last update I got by email was at the beginning of the year.

      Moreover, when I selected the t-shirt size, I asked the organizers to please provide a t-shirt size chart so I can be sure the size I've selected was the right one for me. They said they will make a chart later on and that I'll be given the chance to change the size before the survey is locked down. Nothing was done in that regard.

    32. Creator Jon on May 5, 2014

      @Peter A.

      So far the difference between Pressy and the Limbal is that I got my Limbal :)

      I am very confident that the Pressy will make it out to backers. However like you I would like more info on shipping considering that we were told that shipping was expected to start last week. However it isn't quite time to break out the pitchfork and torches.

      As for "some idiots pay for nothing" you are almost exactly right. Kickstarter is not a store. You didn't buy a product, you funded someone's opportunity to try and create a product. Whether they are successful or not, you got the only "reward" that Kickstarter guarantees.

    33. Creator Peter A. on May 5, 2014

      I am sure that there will be no pressy.
      It is the same bulls***t as the limbal.
      Some idiots pay for nothing and kickstarter doesn't care about it.

    34. Creator Jon on May 5, 2014

      Any update on Pressy deliveries?

      I only ask because I just ordered one of these for less than $5

      https://www.dx.com/p/3-5mm-plug-shortcut-key-for-android-phone-silver-315648#.U2fAEvRDt8E

      I know you guys are doing your best to get this product out to backers, but already copycats & clones are springing up everywhere. Deal Extreme has 3 Pressy clones, and most of us have heard of the Xiaomi MiKey that made headlines a few months ago. Even with your patent it will be nearly impossible to squash all of the Chinese-made knockoffs.

      Please let us know that our Pressy Buttons will be shipping soon.

    35. Creator Hugo Moors on May 5, 2014

      one of the reasons for going with a Pressy is the "only 0.7mm", the picture promoting this is still prominent on the KS product page, the Pressy buttons in this update look a lot bigger, the keychain is completely different, I'm already disappointed by all the delays and lack of communication but getting a different and even inferior product will be a real downer. You almost got $700k a regular (weekly) update should not be too hard. If this continues I think Pressy could be the next project in the news with a class action suit against them, you can't just rip off 28818 people and hope to get away with it.

    36. Creator Sujay Vilash on May 5, 2014

      I have a dilemma. I can get a copycat from Deals Extreme for much less than what I pledged. Do I get the copycat? Or do I keep waiting and support the innovation that is Pressy? With little to no communication from the Pressy team, it is getting harder to stay loyal. I will give it one more month and than I will have to request a refund. Hope it doesn't come to that, though. As for the holder, not fussed. It will stay in my pocket most of the time so the looks are not important. And the DRM? Again, not too fussed. Everyone has to protect their IP. I just hope Pressy allow multiple devices as most people I know have a phone and a tablet. Let's hope multiple devices is allowed.

    37. Creator Kevin Lang on May 4, 2014

      I've emailed before and never got a response from them about delivery. From the looks of this posting thread I'm thinking they are not getting back to anyone else. Anyone know of any other avenues we can take to get an answer out of them?

    38. Creator Justin Sund on May 3, 2014

      When will we be able to download the app and what is the status of shipping?

    39. Creator kani on May 3, 2014

      Any shipping progress?

    40. Creator Poz on May 3, 2014

      @Pierre, good luck getting an answer out of them. They have no respect for their backers, their lack of answering any other questions via updates shows that. I would recommend paying for a mail redirect service.

    41. Creator Pierre-Alexandre Sicart on May 3, 2014

      So, can you confirm shipping has started? Because I move out on May 28th. Should the Pressy button not arrive before then, then I need to change the address.

    42. Creator Pascal Forget on May 2, 2014

      It would be really nice to know if you really started shipping. Are they shipped from China? The packaging looks like what?

    43. Creator David on May 2, 2014

      Marcel - We'll see if it is a hoax, but dimple requires NFC. Which mean you have to keep it running to work (maybe you can set your Pressy up to turn it on, so you can use the dimple). NFC drains battery pretty fast...

    44. Creator Marcel Kos on May 2, 2014

      This whole Pressy starts to looks like an almighty hoax ........ maybe I should switch to http://dimple.io/

    45. Creator Lee Sahagun on May 1, 2014

      @Ryan... Did your manifesto-rant make you feel better? Lots of ways to communicate, but we here in the choir have heard that sermon before.

    46. Creator Arning, Zarzutzki on May 1, 2014

      @Claes Olesen Christensen COPYCAT -SOLD OUT- NEW VERSION FOR LOWER PRICE US$ 4,80

    47. Creator Michael Swift on May 1, 2014

      Think it is less because they are in Israel (which all you US backers seem to have an issue with) and more to do with co-ordinating the sending out of nearly 29k items

    48. Creator william tanaya on April 30, 2014

      @nathan. I think it's because they are "now" based in israel. that's why it take so long... and also. "less than a month" is not including if it got stuck in custom... so.. yeah...

    49. Creator Nathan Hartsell on April 30, 2014

      "we are starting the delivery next week, everyone should receive theirs in lees than a month."

      Holy crap! What are they using, a horse and carriage?

    50. Creator Paul Jones on April 30, 2014

      From their Facebook Page in response to another person running out of patience:

      Pressy Hi (Name Removed), we are starting the delivery next week, everyone should receive theirs in lees than a month. Thanks!
