For sure, more than once you must have experienced a “panic” sensation when an undesirable song comes out on your random music playlist.
At such times the natural tendency would be to rush to the stereo and change the song.
Well, now it can be done by installing a panic button in your computer. It might be a very simple mechanism, but it is certainly effective, allowing you to keep your music always synchronized with your current mood.
The panic button consists of a prank button which has been totally dismantled, except for the pushing mechanism. It is connected to a minimus board, which controls the AVR microcontroller. The microcontroller has an onboard USB hardware, allowing the button to be connected to any device with a USB port.
It is a simple manufacturing process, where all that needs to be done is to properly connect all the elements. When this is done, a USB cable connection is added.
The function of the button is to activate the AVR microprocessor to send the order of skipping the current song to the computer, avoiding all panic generated by the playlist at hand.
