pressy screenshot button

We’ve spoken at length about Pressy on Phandroid already, and now there is even more news to share in regards to the little 3.5mm headphone jack button that could do it all. Pressy has recently passed $600,000. Getting to $650,000 will activate another stretch goal that should excite many of the 25,000 different people pledging funds to make this project a reality.

They’re calling it the “long-press-take-screenshot-draw-share-with-friends-be-happy” feature. In case you haven’t already guessed it — the name is a work in progress. But the feature is exactly what it sounds like: Pressy could come standard with the ability to take a screenshot, draw on said screenshot, and send it to a friend after long-pressing it.

This would definitely be a welcome feature for those creeps out there who like to take screen captures of every incoming Snapchat they can (because 5-10 seconds just isn’t long enough, folks). Of course, the feature will be completely optional for those who don’t care for it. If you don’t remember, the last stretch goal was activated at $500,000, and that brought us a push-to-talk feature built-in. Neato!

Pressy’s Kickstarter campaign is scheduled to close October 14th, with the final product being given an estimated ship date of March 2014. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that Pressy is one of the few projects that can be fulfilled on time once that window arrives. Be sure to read more about Pressy over at the Kickstarter page if you want to learn more, and be quick in pledging funds for one before the project closes in just a few short days.
