Magic Chair Construction Timeline

The timeline for my Super Lounge Musical Chair is a tight one, but day by day, I have honed in on my ideas for what it shall be.

I have narrowed down a chair that was donated for free. It has a bit of an arts-and-crafts aesthetic, but it is much rounder than the traditional straight edges one would find on such an aesthetic. My goal is to match this aesthetic.

I have played with my foce-sensitive resistor. I hooked it up to a multimeter. The resistance measures within the range I’m looking for when I put it between a cushion and its base and sit on it. Next, I will hook it up to an Arduino and carry on from there. Adafruit has a very nice introduction on the sensor:

I will also make the CAD model to visualize how to build it. This should be done by next weekend, the 13th of April. I will also hone in on the materials that I will use. My family has a lot of extra scrap wood, but I may opt for something cleaner from the hardware store. I have a bunch of extra speakers from my first project and plan to incorporate them. I will also get scrap acrylic from Colorado Plastics.

The week after that, the 20th, I should have it built and the software functional. This means I will need to plan woodshop time and laser cutter time. I will have that weekend to finish the presentation and practice it.
