Topic: 'Cushionair' switch
Message: Posted by: PeteAberdeen (Apr 11, 2011 07:56AM)
Hi All,

I plan to build some electronic based effect and I would like to use a on/off switch. I was thinking to use a 'Cushionair' type of switch. Similar to one used in Instant Radio by Shahid Malik or activation switch used in ULTRACINESE By Leonardo Milanesi. Does anyone knows the source of the switch?

Any surface mount momentary switch will work.
Don't make it too complicated. I think "Cushionair" is a word that Malik invented to describe his remote switch system.
Of course, you'll need some foam rubber to "extend" the switch.
You could make a simple toe switch and achieve the same effect. In that case, there wouldn't need to be any padding to extend the surface of the switch.
Good Luck,
Doug
