This button has the shape and design of a lightbulb. The background is light yellow with a gray 'screw' section at the bottom. The dark gray text across the center reads: "Percussion 2007." Below, the yellow text reads: "Light Your Way". In the upper part of the lightbulb is a green and black logo. The button is decorated with six lights around the curved edge that flash green, red and blue when the dial on the back is pressed or tightened.
Percussion Software was founded in 1994 in Woburn, MA by Alan Matthews, Barry Reynolds, and John Devine. They created add-ons for Lotus Notes.
