How do I use the Headphone Button as a "Button"?

I want to create an app that triggers an event when the button in an earphone/headphone is clicked.

For example, in YouTube (or most music apps), the button press cause the play/pause (:play_or_pause_button:) event. Also, long click & double click trigger some other events.

So, is it possible in MIT AI2, maybe using an extension?

If the headphones use Bluetooth to communicate with the phone, there might be a chance. Otherwise, I suspect not.

Taifun has an extension that detects whether or not a head phone cable (jack) is plugged in:
