The Volkswitch is a proof of concept customizable accessibility switch developed by Ken Hackbarth of Volksswitch.org.

The Volksswitch is a 3D printable pressure switch that is designed for assembly, testing, customization, manufacturing (all the ‘Designed for X’s’). It can be assembled quickly from off-the-shelf components (no soldering required) at a cost of less than $10.

Detailed instructions for constructing and assembling the Volksswitch at the Volksswitch site link below and the 3D printable files can be found at the Thingiverse link below.

This project is a work-in-progress and Ken hopes that more people will get involved to improve each and every element of the design.
