Chairs with haptic feedback are nothing new. But they haven’t taken off because they’re usually expensive, not realistic – why would your butt vibrate if you get shot? Plus, the novelty wears off fairly quickly. But a cheap one that you can put together is a different proposition. YouTube star DIYer Rulof Maker will show you how.
Rulof made the chair by soldering a relay switch to a DualShock 3 controller’s rumble motor connection, so that it would also trigger the large vibration motor that he made.
The tricky part of this project is that he made his big vibration motor using molten lead. I’m sure you guys can come up with a safer alternative.
