I've done it. I've created something worth putting on ModRetro! And it actually works, to boot! YAAAAY!
Well, yesterday, I found this cool massage recliner for $8 at my local thrift shop. Not a bad deal. It was missing a correct power adaptor, but we found one from a universal set. It's not really a GOOD massage chair, it just vibrates really loudly and makes you have to poop. But whatever.
While sitting on my recliner, buttcheeks clenched tightly(it's that bad), I thought, "How cool would it be if they made one of those cool speaker chairs into a recliner?" And, "They should make a wireless speaker chair so I don't have to screw with these cords!" Then, I thought of my worn-out speaker chair that I can't use anymore(It's too short to be a chair that I use a lot) and my wireless headphones that I got brand-new for 50 cents at a garage sale. What if I combined the three to make a wireless, massaging speaker recliner?
Something happened in my brain that night.
Long story short, I stayed up until 4:00 AM working on it, and then I woke up at 11:30 and immediately started on it again. I finished it about 45 minutes ago with just one bug. I can't use the massage function while using the speakers without the speakers getting staticy from so much vibration. Any help with that?
Here's the finished product. It's an album. Is it cool if I post an album? Nobody else does...http://imgur.com/a/KFaV8
Crap. Forgot to upload this one too. It's when my dad and I were cutting the holes for the speakers and module and whatnot.http://i.imgur.com/nA0DO.jpg
I'm proud to say that I didn't get any help from my parents besides my dad helping me with the jigsaw and moral support. I also didn't come crying to ModRetro for help when I failed like a little Sega. Wait... CRAP. I forgot that I asked about sound amplification. Sorry.
And cool bonus! The wireless part is COMPLETELY wireless! It takes two AAAs! No cords!
