A long time ago I used to make my own double-sided PCBs at home using a fairly big tanning bed for exposing the PCBs. Hauling that thing around isn’t exactly convenient though, so I decided to make a small box to fulfill the same function instead.

A while ago, some people at work asked me to build them a couple of buttons to be used for a quiz. After some discussion, we agreed that a wireless system would be the most convenient. Building upon the Party Button design, this is the result.

A friend of mine got wedded recently and wanted his wedding party to have a setup with a big pushbutton that people could bash in order to take a picture of themselves. He asked me if I could design something bombproof that would survive the usual wedding party shenanigans.

I recently had to program quite a few microcontrollers and got annoyed at one hand having to both hold the PCB and use the keyboard to program a chip. Therefore, I decided to upgrade my programming pen, so that I could trigger programming with its build-in pushbutton. The solution I came up with was to add a tiny USB keyboard circuit to the pen’s interface.

The screen that we watch TV on at home has build-in speakers, but, because it’s actually a computer display, hasn’t got an infrared receiver. This made it impossible to set the volume with the TV receiver remote. I recently bought some Stellaris LaunchPad development boards and figured this was the perfect opportunity to make something useful with one.
