Intro: DDR Dance Pad / Carpet in Wood
How to make a good ddr pad with some wood, copper foil, paint and a dead USB pad/keyboard
Step 1: Tools and Materials That You Need
As tools you need a saw, pen, meter , soldering iron and some good tape
As materials you need 80*90*1.3cm Agglomerated for the foundation, a 80 * 110*0.3cm wood use for the back of closet (it's a flexible wood)
- some screws and nails
- a broken USB pad or keyboard (with the electronic in working condition)
- some wires
- copper foils
Step 2: Let's Get Started !!
In first I suggest you to draw some lines on the Agglomerated in order to mark the emplacement of the spacer.
Then cut 10 pieces of 80 * 2 cm in the 3mm wood.
Step 3: Nails and Hammer
In this step you have to nail the spacer to the agglomerated with nails
Step 4: The Hard Part (if There Was One)
It's the most important step : you will scotch some cooper foil in the middle of each pad on the two part of the sandwich.
Step 5: Is It Finish ?
So now you have two piece of wood with some cooper and a lot of wire on it.
Go get them together with some screw !!!
And what to do with the wires ? well sold them in your USB "controllers" in place of the buttons for a pad or in place of some keys of the keyboard for a broken-keyboard.
Then test it and maybe you have to adjust the quantity of foam under the copper or maybe add some between the two layer wood because some buttons are always active it's up to you to tune it like you want.
Then paint it an go get some sport on stepmania !!!
