Pressy: the one-button Android controller so cool it was Kickstarted in under a day

If Kickstarter had a 24-hour funders membership, Pebble and the Bolex Digital camera can be welcoming Pressy right now. In beneath a day, the multifunction Android controller has greater than doubled its $forty,000 aim (elevating $108,435 from four,889 backers as of this writing) and with forty five days left to go, the numbers maintain climbing. Maybe its simplicity is what’s making it such successful. Pressy plugs into any Android gadget’s headphone port (Gingerbread and above), and clicking its unobtrusive zero.7mm-tall button controls and automates any method of your gizmo’s features. By means of its app you possibly can assign a given activity to a sequence of clicks; it is as much as you if it takes two brief clicks to hurry-dial your mother or one lengthy press to snap an unobtrusive image, for instance. You possibly can nonetheless use it if in case you have a pair of headphones in too, with the cans’ play button subbing in for management. Intelligent.

In contrast to different Kickstarters, this is not some far-off prospect: Developer Nimrod Again has promised Pressy will probably be out there inside 4 months. A primary Pressy will set you again $17, for a selection of colours with a keychain storage sheath you will need to pony up $25. Oh, and should you fancy your self a programmer and need the gadget’s API, then drop $1,000 and make that tier’s one different pledge much less lonely.
