Use Xbox 360 Controller vibration to control an I/O device for my Vibrating Chair to build and make an instruct-able (The Hillbilly Gaming Chair)
Basically this is what i want to do. I want to use my Xbox 360 controller to control my Vibrating Chair. Its a lounge chair and it just vibrates and it called a "massage chair".
So to do this I though i would take a controller find the wire that sends power to start vibration (i want the controller to keep its vibration functionality too, as the chair will have no intensity it will only turn on and off with what i have in mind) i want to wire that to a switch that when the chair is on already it will flip the switch that will give the chair the power and start to vibrate then stop.
so this chair plugs into a wall wort to the chair uses DC power (i am a beginner modder/hacker) so i think their would be no problem doiong this hack by doing the following:
1) drill a hole in my controller
2) connect a wire to the part of the controller that tells it to vibrate
3) somehow make that into a way i can make a power switch
4) connect the wire from the controller to the switch
5) connect the switch to the power input
In my mind this would work by the controller sending a signal to the power switch and while the chair is in the on position this switch will become the new way the chair activates (while the switch and controller is installed) the power is supplied my a dc power adapter and i plan to put the switch in between where the power plug plugs into the chair so it would be a removable part easily plug and play.
I will post the chair voltages and give info and pictures when i find out if it is possible and if so how to do it basically then if you wish to help me i will get with you for the facts to create this and ill make an instruct-able (maybe this is something others can do but never thought of? or it has been thought of but their is little interest or doesn't work well) either way I want to try or find out what happens trying....
I ONLY HAVE THE IDEA
I would like to do it but i would need some help on what i would need and if some circuitry is required i hope its at a minimum and the most parts already built would be best for me. Thank you
Most important EVERYONE that helps me will be cited in my instruct-able it would be the least I could do.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE
