Always nice to see you make more "joking" videos like the comic sans rubber dome one :)
Enjoyed it :)

What...??!
That's our golden radio voice Chyros!

After having noticed a post with such a title in the feed, I thought, "Such a naughty and frolicky teardown... Must be condemned by the dead serious kind of DT members..." :lol:

It can be a somewhat useful mini desk lamp if it is modified this way:

p.s. I said "somewhat" because such a mini desk lamp although being quite handy to switch on and off will not be the only desk lamp I may use, unless the LEDs can be modded to be brighter (or dimmer) and with the ambient color that I like.

Skipped the buy on MD on this as well. Was supposed to get one and be used as my desktop power switch but thought my kids would most likely be messing with it.

You can also make this cute switch a switch to call the police or a fire alarm or a button to activate transcontinental nuclear missiles, not having them labelled and just put them on the side of a corridor. :mrgreen:

Good video as always, won an orange one at the latest Montreal meetup, since ordered a PCB kit, not sure what I'll program it to do yet.
