DIY Gaming Chair

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

As we see from this picture, even the old and infirm can enjoy a fine gaming chair. This white-haired man and his bare, sad feet, is actually ensconced quite comfortably in a DIY driving chair. The creators pulled a 1996 Diamonte passenger seat and built a steel chassis. They painted that bugger, slapped on a Logitech steering wheel, and lived the dream, man.

They even provide some wonderful tips with dealing with the proletariat:

For Chrissake don t tell them you re using it for a game chair. They won t get it. Tell them you just want a cheap-ass replacement for your car or something. This isn t a tremendously geek-friendly place. Dress in work clothes, speak simply, be respectful, don t wear anything expensive (or talk on your $900 cell phone while there), and just get the job done.


Anyway, might be a fun weekend project for a metalsmith and his apprentice.
