Introduction

This technique allows you to hide a Crazy Circuits Jumbo Pushbutton and activate it via a LEGO mechanism. There are quite a few different ways to get this outcome, but this is the most simple way that we've found. If you're wanting activate many different pushbuttons you'd just do this technique several times. For instance we once made a working NES controller by building 6 buttons this way.

Please note that there are MANY ways of accomplishing this function. This technique is the way we like to make projects, but we'll sometimes use slightly different pieces on projects depending on what we have in our inventory.
