Mad Scientist Gear Part 1: Light Switches


Mad Scientist Light Switches

It recently dawned on me that I tend to laugh maniacally and wring my hands just before I hit the ‘Publish’ button for every post, so therefore I must have a Mad Scientist complex. As I began to cope with this realization, I thought it would be best to come up with some ideas that would suit my lifestyle.

So I begin the Mad Scientist series with a pair of light switch designs, both of which resemble an old-school industrial fuse box lever. These simple accessories are often equated to Doc Brown or Dr. Frankenstein, where the act of flipping the switch was the moment of truth – there was no turning back.

  1. Yes.

    They must have some resistance though; I’ve never used these types of switches but if I used one and it didn’t have a decent resistance, I’d be sorely disappointed.

    The mad scientist door is eh, but I love this one; I’d get one for a couple bucks (under $20 😛 )

  2. I would be happy with something a little more Frankenstein, with a wooden base and exposed (via clear insulation) wiring. maybe some LED sparks?

  3. Both ideas would be awesome variations. Whatever allows me to yell “It’s ALIVE!” whenever I flip the switch.
