Application examples

Find some typical scenarios in our use cases for pushboxes!

  • Exhibitons, fairs and shows:
    Let the customer start (or pause or restart on next trigger) a demonstration video of your product. Due to the heavy-vandalism-protected robust design of the button thousands of customers can trigger it without destroying your demonstration computer/tablet.
  • Customer Information Terminals: Motivate your customers to take a closer look at your customer information terminal by attracting them with a big button. Advantage: The touchscreen of your customer terminal will be less stressed if common key functions like “Enter” are executed by the button.
  • Attract and motivate your customers: Attach the button to a tablet (via USB-OTG adapter cable) or notebook computer. Then run an application (i.e. powerpoint slideshow or powerpoint pages with embedded videos) that motivate your customer to press the button again and get more involved with your product.
  • Powerpoint presentation for customers:
  • Let your customers cycle through your presentation without typing any unwanted keys/ disrupting the presentation cycle (i.e. press space via button/customer trigger; at the end of the slideshow auto-restart the presentation)
  • Industrial environment: Start/stop a machine process via USB.
  • Artists performers on stage: Trigger a beamer show with an appealing buzzer. Trigger by foot is also no problem.
  • Private or TV Shows/ Gameshows: Let your candidates push the button to play a sound and give an answer (buzzer function).
  • Instant logout/login: After a process has finished, instantly logout (in Windows, OS-X, Linux); next button triggers instantly login
  • Instant Video/Audio Start/Pause-Function: By programming the ‘USB-HID-Consumer Start/Pause-Mediakey’ the button alternates between Play and Pause.
  • Type ANY sequence of key-combinations: I.e. Windows+D for desktop; Windows+L for Logoff/Logon; PlayMedia: Windows+R + “wmplayer C:\videos\demo1.avi”; CTRL-ALT-ESC for taskmanager)
  • Fast and secure user login/ logout: On first button press let the button type Windows+L for Logon screen. Then let it type the internal save user password and sending an Enter. On second button press let the button type Windows+L to log out.
  • DJ function: mute/unmute your sound; with 2 buttons: set volume higher or lower (also in several steps=fade in/out)
