I built a USB Button for my photo booth. I call it The Button and it consists of a die-cast aluminum box painted black, with non-slip rubber feet, and a button attached to a Teensy. It's a damn fine looking button if I do say so myself! (See it here.)
But... maybe you want something a bit more epic. If so, the The (Big) Button is for you.
The (Big) Button functions just like The Button, except it's BIGGER, and it lights up. You get the Teensy (programmed and tested) with a pushbutton soldered in place, and a USB cable.
The (Big) Button uses a small microcontroller called a Teensy that emulates a USB keyboard. We’ve programmed it to type a space when you push The (Big) Button, eliminating the need for a full keyboard. Users simply push The (Big) Button to trigger the photo booth.
The (Big) Button should work on any computer that supports USB, and should not need any special drivers, since it’s basically just a keyboard with one key—a spacebar. It should also work fine with any other photo booth software that uses a spacebar for the trigger. (We can also program other keys or key combos, just ask!)
Note: Even though the photos show a red push button, we can (on occasion) get green, blue, yellow, or white ones. Unless you need a specific color, we'll send you red. If you need a specific color, let us know, though be aware this may delay your order by a week or so.
So here’s the deal—if you want one, they are $100.00 USD. (Shipping is extra and will be calculated at checkout.)

(Is a spacebar button not quite what you need? We can also do F5 or other custom button programming, including multiple buttons for more controls. If you can provide the enclosure and all you need is a pre-programmed Teensy with a button, take a look at The (Bare) Button. Otherwise, for something custom please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of what you’re looking for.)
