When I was in college, my roommate and I were slightly
addicted to 2 things: Dukes of Hazard reruns and infomercials. Having watched
the “PushLight” special probably 75 times in the 2 years we live together, we
decided to buy a pack and split them. We used them in our closets, the trunk of
our cars, to walk down the hall at night.
When I was still in college, my roommate and I are super
addicted to almost everything nice. But there are two things that stand out:
Dukes of Hazard reruns and infomercials.
You bet we did it! Several years aog I just had a roas beef
issue while catering to a certain party and in order for me to let the air out
of the trunk, we need to tore the light out so that it would not totally drain
the battery. Now, I am wishing that I still have a pack of the PushLights from
my dorm mate so that I could light up my trunk the way I want it to be.
With this in mind, I was totally delighted when I finally
received a certain email from a company customer: the DeArmond Tool.
the email said…
“here are the one of the pictures that we have to sow you
one of your company cases that were being used in our product line. This was
the prototype of the product we have been working on. We would like to
appreciate the designer of this case. It totally gave our small product the
touch of class it actually needs! The small light is capable of lighting an
entire room! It has 540 Lumen and I am so in love with it! Plain but it is so

Just over the weekend, there was something happening that
baffled me: I have beaten my boyfriend at the game of chess! One of the first
words that came out of my mouth was “I won?” and “Did you let me win?” Because
in reality, we have been playing a couple of chess games now for about 8 months
and I kept on losing to every single game.
Until this weekend, we tried playing the Trivial Pursuit.
However, he mopped the board with me but it is okay. I still beat him at chess.
I did a small reflection thought. All the weeks of him teaching me the pitfalls
and the falls of the game lead to me to making better game choices. It also
guided me towards the strategy that I formulated in order to beat him. It also
started to sink in: I am learning and I love learning. It is wonderful to
discover how things are working and how they are made.
With this in mind, we will look at how some of the
electronic equipment work:
For this article, we are going to look at the buttons placed
on a keyfob electronics enclosure. One can see the different types of buttons
existing everywhere: calculators, keyless remotes of the car, and the
television remote. There is a rubber keypad with a conductive contact placed on
its back. Once the button is pressed, the conductive contact suddenly meets the
board and it started to send an electronic signal that is totally specific to
the taskt aht was assigned to the circuit.
Let us take an very simple example, in a calculator, when
you press the button that was labeled “1” it indicates the number one. When the
button is labeled as “+” is signals the circuit to add, when you press “3” and
finally the “=” sign it tells the computer to add the numbers you just keyed
In a similar way, in a keyless entry remote, pressing the
button that was labeled “unlock” will lead to the activation of the circuit
board and it will send a wireless signal to the system’s receiver. This is
located in the vehicle and the electric shocks should be opened. This is what you
call the key less entry.
There are companies that has an entire line of key ring
style remote and these products are widely available in different sizes,
styles, and colors. The companies can even print directly on the buttons of
these keyfobs to be able to customize them for the project you will be needing
them for. If you need help in narrowing down the selection, just contact the
customer service representatives to help you in your inquiry.
