First off, I want to say I got the original inspiration for doing this from this instructable:

I thought this was a great idea, but it was not really quite the playable experience I was looking for. I wanted something I could actually play as if I was punching the person I was playing. This led me to modifying my Slam Man Boxing Dummy to add arcade buttons I could punch.

Step 1: Unattach foam

The first thing you have to do is unattach the foam pieces from the head and torso of the boxing dummy to put the arcade buttons into. The dummy has these weird black plastic screw things that hold the foam onto the plastic dummy and you can pry these up just using a screwdriver. Once those are popped off, you can drill holes into the foam and insert the buttons. You also need to drill holes into the plastic where the button will go through to allow the wire to come out the back.
This is awesome! It looks like a good way to get some exercise as well.
OMG, I remember seeing this was back when you posted this, didnt think it was you Samuel
no dodge right?
Never mind that - what about SELECT for gaining energy in between rounds???? Whatever though - it's so slow, the guy got knocked down by Glass Joe. LOL!
Now that would give you a workout! I'd say this is better than Wii Boxing, even!
