August 26th - via:

Pressy adds an awesomely useful button to your Android phone [Video]

August 31st - via:
Pressy is a Kickstarter project which is as awesome as it is handy. Imagine executing several of the most used tasks on your phone with just the press of a button. No need to unlock your screen and look for the concerned app if you have the Pressy. You can instruct your handset to carry out a particular function by sending it a click or a series of clicks. It’s like Morse code for your device. (Read More)

Pressy is a Fully-Funded Kickstarter Project That Adds Functionality to Your Headphone Jack

August 29th - via:
Pressy, a project on Kickstarter that already reached its $40,000 goal, has the Internet going crazy. The device/accessory is a pretty great idea, though. Pressy fits right into your phone’s audio jack, which then allows you to perform tasks with a few simple taps on its button. What’s even sweeter is that when you have your headphones plugged in, and not Pressy, you can use your headphone’s button (if they have one) to perform the tasks. I suggest watching the video, because explaining it better than they have would be impossible. (Read More)

It's not a pair of headphones or external speakers, though -- it's a button. A button that you press. Hence, Pressy. And this button can be configured to do anything you want it to do. (Read More)
