A friend of mine who teaches high school science commissioned me to make a Jeopardy style quiz game controller with a large timer display and buttons for players. The best way to make a button for the players that I could think of was to use the large push buttons you can find at most dollar stores. The complete project description is available on my website
The problem with using these buttons is that they were designed to be push on/push off, and I need a momentary button. Rather then buy new buttons and replace the stock ones (as is done in this Instructable
) I figured out how to easily convert the built in button to be momentary.
All you need are a few simple tools and a little bit of motivation!
