Setup & instructions
The Solderless Unibody Switch is a simple switch that enables the user to easily activate a button. This device is suitable for users with limited dexterity and finger movement. The unique design of the single-piece print and few electronic components enables the maker to build the device without the use of a soldering iron, allowing the device to be more accessible and buildable for makers.
The Solderless Unibody Switch is a simple device that is meant to be made accessible to makers that don’t have access to a soldering iron. This device is intended for individuals that are looking for a switch that has a lower profile.
