Using just a basic pot, small spring, and pushbutton switch, Danwagoner created a compact combo push-pot -

An idea I had for making one of my projects more user friendly and cut down on interfaces (buttons, etc). Completely made out of stuff I had laying around. Turn to scroll through, push down to select, and only one knob to deal with.

Nice idea – looks like a good way to simplify cramped layouts.
