Secret Passageway Switch

As children, we dreamed about having hidden passageways in our home. We longed to have adventures like Batman, and to have an area of solitude, a fortress if you will, free from the prying eyes of our parents. Now we're grown-ups and still want a hidden room in our house. It's a total waste of the square footage however and lacks any sort of practicality, but that doesn't mean we can't have the secret switch. Designed to access a secret passageway, or more reasonably a light, the Secret Passageway Switch is pure genius. Using one of your favourite books, which it will not damage in the least, one mounts this to their book shelf and then simply pulls the book back (pictured above), a la almost every horror movie ever made, and your light turns secret passageway opens. Available here.


  1. F-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c ! I was looking for similar projects last week, and now i see this post. I normally use breadboard to do this type of work, with one of these, job will be more easy. I was thinking, and searching others projects to do my own PCB. So, let me try my luck, maybe i can win.
