Trick out your Easy button from Staples to deliver custom phrases and have a slick new Halloween look.

What you need for this project:
  • A Staples Easy Button (Dure)
  • A small recording and playback device
~Mine was from Radio Shack, but a YakBak can do, or anything else you deem worthy.
  • Orange, white, black, and clear gloss spray paint
  • Sand paper & Dremel
  • Hot glue gun
  • Soldering Iron, Solder, and your normal soldering things
  • Wire

Note: I'm extremely close to finishing this project and will post pictures of the finished product once I finish.

Step 1: Dissemble It!

Take it apart! There are screws under the four feet on the bottom. Take the feet off, but save them for later. Unscrew the screws and keep 'em safe too.

Take the top part off, including both the easy part and the silver ring. We're going to do the case mod first.
Ahh evil so evil yet so evil...(trales off into a thought about pure evil)
Nice! one of my friends has this button and I bet he would love this instructable.
i would consider using slicone instead of hot glue for the letters
Use the evil laugh from the end of the WTF BOOM sound clip. Just google it to find it.
that'd be funny if it shocked you when you pressed it. lol
i think that is possible...im going to make it by bending sheet metall to make the shell and use a elletric conducting paint to shock when it presses you then laught s dramatically!!!
this is awesome. imma just make a big pointless button tho
Back a few years, I could get the digital voice recorder / player chip and built my own recorder, but it was a wee bit bigger then this one
This is Great, Emo button... That was EMO! LOL TT __
