Today with most people working from home using teleconferencing applications, a custom control panel for such interactions could come in handy. This inspired professor Elena Long to design her own Zoom interface around an Arduino, a 3D-printed enclosure, and a series of pushbuttons that allow for custom printed icons.
Long’s device features 12 main buttons — five momentary, seven latching. These are wired to light up via LEDs. There’s also a large red mushroom button on the end provides a final latching input, which is perfect for aborting calls with a flourish.
