Flap Presser 'Switch' - Back to the Future!

Flap Presser 'Switch' - Back to the Future!


Back in the day, I was an SLP working with 45 students at the 'Poor-But-Honest' Center.  Our technology budget was . . . minimal.  So, we figured out how to make things . . . Decades before the 'Maker Movement'!  The flap switch shown below is clearly well-used (circa 1988), but helped many students access their computers!  The link below shows how to use what you (hopefully!) have in your home or apartment to make a flap switch that will press down one key on a computer keyboard.
