How To Make a Wireless Batman Bust Light Switch [DIY]


No mancave is complete without secret switch hidden in a bust. It’s a fact—just ask 1960’s Bruce Wayne. The good news is that you can build one of your own thanks to detailed instructions on The New Hobbyist. With a push of a Shakespeare (or, in this case Beethoven) neck button, you can turn on all of the lights in a room wirelessly.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Momentary push button
  • Multi-function 1CH RF Remote Control Tx/Rx Set
  • Various hinges/bits of metal
  • An impressive bust (I went with Beethoven)
  • 6 outlet plug strip
  • 12v power supply
  • Various lengths of wire
  • Small piece for wood for switch mount
  • Glue
  • Wood stain

Needless to say, lights are only the beginning. With some modifications, something like this could be used to open up doors and secret bookshelf passages.
