Build everything off what at the IKEA lamp is soluble.

  • Take the yellow color and dyeing the box completely. Also the plate of the bottom.
  • Do it where you do not mess up everything yellow.
  • Let it dry.
  • Take the template (images) print them out and cut them out.
  • Take the black paint and spray a question mark on.
  • Make sure that the question mark is not the wrong way. (because I did it at the first time)
  • Let it dry.
  • cut a hole for the button in the plate of the bottom (image 2)
  • click the button in it

look at the image.

ceiling:

  • cut off the plug of the lamp
  • press a hole in the middle of the cover distributor
  • put the wire through it
  • make a knot for strain relief

lamp:

  • solve the strain relief by the socket
  • open the socket
  • solve one wire

  • connect this with the connector and a piece of the single wire
    (this goes to the button)

  • another wire go from the free clamp to button
  • press the two Flat-plug-sleeve at the ends of the wire
  • cut a pice of the socket (for wires)
  • click it all back together
  • maximize the button size with piece of plastic and glue

Make sure the strain relief and the isolation!

You should add the sound effect too!

I thought about it. But it gets complicated, I need small lightweight components, a space to accommodate them and would bring everything to the correct voltage-level.

if I still find a solution, I will expand the whole thing.

Perhaps the recordable greeting card hack could be added for the sound effect? Gut the card, record the sound effect, then attach it to the pressure plate so when pushed the connection is made?

Awesome!
