If you’re an aspiring Alex Trebek with some Arduino skills, you should check out RoysterBot’s Instructable on how to make a Quiz-O-Tron 3000, an electronic quiz contestant lockout system, which allows contestants to “buzz in” during trivia games. He used it at a holiday party and therefore needed something sturdy enough to withstand the hand slams of inebriated party goers. Hacking up a few Staples “Easy Buttons” proved to be the perfect—and cheapest—solution.
