The excitement around the Pressy Kickstarter campaign, which shows a tiny device and app that occupied a headphone port to add an extra hardware button to your phone, is reaching a fever pitch. Like so many ambitious Kickstarter projects before them, the creators have missed their original March ship date, but it looks like they’re closing in on the finish line.
According to the latest update sent to backers, production has begun at Pressy’s Chinese hardware partner, and the first of 40,000 Pressy buttons will be shipped starting on April 28th.
