Pressy - a programmable button for your Android phone

TweakTown writes about an interesting new project on Kickstarter called Pressy. It's basically a tiny button that goes into the 3.5mm headphone jack of an Android phone, it works in cooperation with an app and allows great customization. This definitely looks like an interesting Kickstarter!
The company who designed Pressy says that the Android-based device can perform pretty much any task you can think of. There's an app required, with the default Pressy settings seeing three pre-set actions: one short click toggles your flashlight on or off, one long click toggles the phone in and out of silent mode, and a double-press will take a photo.

But, thanks to Android, Pressy will see lots of customization. These options will include the ability to use Pressy to record a phone call, toggle Wi-Fi/Bluetooth on or off, capture a screenshot, or close all of the running applications. Pretty requires Android 2.3 and above, which covers nearly all of the devices on the market right now.
