    The actual arcade part is just an old computer taken out of its case (it's in a plastic bin under the chair) and the monitor rigged to the chair. The rig is specific to the chair, and isn't the most secure, so I didn't bother making an instructable for it, but if you want more details feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer! Thanks, Zachary Stupid Inventor

    sweet!

    swivel wheels - easy dragging or if you're feeling really lazy you can row from the porch to the yard.

    batteries and inverter - it might rain and seeing those wires on the grass makes me nervous (solar panel optional)

    clip-on minifan - for those really hot days

    plastic tubing + 2 liter bottle of mt. dew - kinda like a drink hat but the bottles hanging on the side of the chair.
