Based on The Awesome Button , Les made a one step boss dialer by hooking an emergency button into his employer’s IP telephone system. Inside the button is a Teensy board , which connects to his computer via USB. A C# app on his computer listens for the pause/break key from the Teensy and makes an HTTP request to the telephone gateway to connect his desk to his boss’s cell . You can check out the video demo to see it in action and review the source code on his blog . I really like this project, but I’m curious to know how his boss feels about being one button press away from a call from Les!
