A pushbutton control panel for your Zoom calls

A pushbutton control panel for your Zoom calls

from arduino.cc

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.



Whereas many would assume the console is powered by either a Leonardo or Micro, Long’s unit is actually based on a Mega set up with the HoodLoader2 bootloader that enables it to act as a virtual keyboard.

Those wishing to recreate the project for their desk can find more details on Long’s GitHub.

If you're interested in making your own version, PMD Way has you covered with a huge range of parts including Arduino Uno compatible boards, a wide range of illuminated buttons, and more.
