Step 1: What You Will Need
Items you will need for making this iPod dock:
1. PS2 Controller (I combined two of them)
2. Hot glue
4. Drill/file/razor(anything you plan on using for making a hole in the controller)
5. USB cable for ipod
6. Headphone spliter (Optional)
Step 2: Take Apart the Controller
Unscrew your PS2 controller and remove everything, all you will need to keep is all the buttons, and the two analog sticks.
Step 3: Making Two Holes
Start making the holes to fit in the iPod cable and the headphone splitter (If you want it). Do whatever you need to make the hole, whether it be carve at it with a pocket knife, drill a few holes, and then file it all smooth, it all works and there is no "right" way to do it.
Step 4: Hot Glue It In
Make sure your USB cable and headphone splitter fit your holes,
start your gluing by puting the cable through the hole and connect your iPod, postion it however you would like. Now glue the cable in place while your iPod is plugged in (I promise this will not harm your iPod). Wait a few minutes for the glue to dry.
(This next step is optional for the headphone splitter)
Now remove your iPod, push the headphone splitter through the hole and put your iPod back on the dock making sure both cables are fully inserted. Then glue the headphone splitter in place.
Step 5: Glue All of the Buttons Back in Place
Glue the buttons and analog sticks back in their original locations.
Step 6: Finish It Off
Put the top half of the controller on the bottom half and screw it back together.
***You may need to carve out a bigger hole in the controller to fit the USB cable and headphone splitter out the back***
***You may want to cover the exposed white part of the USB cable with sharpie or paint***
Plug in your iPod and enjoy your stylish charging!
