This will show you how to make a simple pillow with two in built speakers. Like the commercially available 'Sound asleep Pillow'. This means you can plug in any audio device, Ipod, computer, etc and listen to music or watch a film without getting tangled up in earphones.
Other instructables similar to this one have put speakers in an external device, in a tin under the pillow or on a pad pinned to the top. To my knowledge this is the first instructable to install the speakers in the pillow.
Also there is the added novelty of a custom made pillow case (which glows in the dark)
Step 1: Gather Materials
You may well have all this stuff lying around. I was making this as a gift so I decided to buy a new pillow and case.
You will need:
- Pillow & pillow case
- Old headphones, earphones are not ideal but will do
- Female 3.5mm jack connector
- Soldering iron
- Heat-shrink tubing
- Needle and thread
- 2 part epoxy or hot glue
You may need:
- Fabrics paints
