Step 1: Step 1: What You Need

In this project, you will need:

  • A VCR (preferably broken or old) and maybe some old remotes and other big technologies
  • different sized screwdrivers
  • scissors
  • super/ hot glue
  • different sized pliers

Step 2: Step 2: Take It Apart

Now start unscrewing all the screws that you can find on the outside. To better your chances of unscrewing them, dig the screwdriver into the screw hard and then twist. When you are done, you should be able to remove the hood. Don't discard it! You might be able to use it later in this project or another one. Save the screws too.

Step 3: Step 3: It's What's on the Inside That Counts (literally!)

Now that you have taken off the hood, look on the inside and try to map out the interior of it. What parts do you want to use? Where are all of the screws? What pieces do you think will fit together? Take it apart (and don't be too rough). Save the screws you take out here too.

Step 4: Step 4: Break It and Make It

Now, with all of the parts that you have, look at yourself going through these parts as if they were an obstacle course. Assemble the pieces in the way that you have imagined them. You might need some of the parts that you weren't going to use, or parts from other technology.

Step 5: Step 5: What Else

Now that you have done this, you should know that you don't have to make an obstacle course. You could make an office, a house, or whatever else your imagination opens up too! Just make it you!

    I love VCRs - I'm not sure I get what this instructable is about, though.

    I was bored, so I made a mini VCR playground. I never got all the right parts to make a VCR house like I wanted.
