adding a push-button Answered
I'd appreciate any advice regarding this potential project.
I would like to take a regular old basic laser pointer and hack it so that I can turn it on and off with a push button, at a short distance, and connected by wire.
The original device may have a rubber button on the side or back, or maybe it's turned on with a twist, or maybe something else. That would have to be left 'on' -- or, better yet, bypassed. Because I want to be able to activate it by pressing and holding down a button, just like a doorbell.
(I suppose flashlights and any number of other devices would work similarly.)
For the project I have in mind, having the switch hard-wired to the device would be fine, but naturally I'd love to hear about anyone's wireless ideas!
Thanks so much!!!!!
