LED Arcade Buttons

LED Arcade Buttons

You asked for it, here it is: A lighted arcade style button. It has an LED in it, and it gets power directly from the USB cable. LED Arcade Buttons are available in red, green, blue, yellow, or white. This button comes without a case, so you can install it in whatever enclosure or panel you’d like. This button has a flat top, and clicks nicely when you press it. It’s said to be good for ten million presses. You can swap out the microswitch easily after ten million… The button fits easily in a 1″ hole, but would also fit in a 15/16″ hole, if you’re really trying to be precise. The button is approximately 1 1/4″ in diameter. It...

Mini USB Button

Mini USB Button

This button functions just like the Big Red Button, but it’s about as small as I can make it.  It is available with either a red or yellow button. The case is just less than 2″x2″ and 1 1/4″ high. It comes with a 6′ usb cable. So what does it do? Well, it can do almost anything you’d like. Normally, it prints a space, which makes it perfect for most DIY Photo Booth software. I use Sparkbooth, and this button is great with it. It will also work with Qlab, if you’re using that program for audio or video playback, perhaps for a video installation where you’d like someone to push a button to trigger an event or cue. If...

David Lee Roth Scream Box audio toy

David Lee Roth Scream Box audio toy

Here it is! The David Lee Roth Scream box is now for sale. The small button turns it on, the knob is for volume, and the big button plays a random sound when you press it! There is a speaker in the bottom of the case. This is the Roth Scream Box that you may have seen in a video that’s been making its way around the internets: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tgtsfkncld/6995106433/ Anyway, this box DOES NOT come with any of David Lee Roth’s screams on it. You’ll have to find those yourself. They aren’t hard to find on the internet. I can’t/won’t distribute DLR’s screams. You can go to http://thegarage.dozuki.com for instructions on...

Qlab USB Go Button – Redundant Control Solution

Qlab USB Go Button – Redundant Control Solution

Finally a simple solution to a redundant backup for Qlab! Using this QLab USB go button, and two MacBook Pros, you can hit go on both computers at the same time with one button, leaving your other hand free to mix! Plug one 6′ USB cable into each computer, and you’re controlling them both. The big red button is the go button. It is satisfying to press and the microswitch’s reliability has been tested to 10,000,000 cycles by the switch manufacturer. There is a 1 second double-go protection built into the code in the controller. It also requires a “Key Up” event before firing a second GO, which means even if you hold the button down for ten...

Big Red Button!

Big Red Button!

PRESS THE BIG RED BUTTON! Everyone wants to press this button when they see it! So what does it do? Well, it can do almost anything you’d like.

The best part is, it lights up with the power from the USB cable and it’s got a great industrial look to it. This button is available in red, green, blue, or yellow, and with or...
