I’m building a portable massager. It is consisted of multiple vibrating pads that could be placed on most surfaces. When you lie back on the pads, you can get a personal massage from the vibrations.
The hardest part for me was to determine the wiring of multiple massage pads and how to control them independently and collectively.
Here I made two massage pad prototypes. Each pad’s vibration strength is controlled by a potentiometer.
-Plop the motor’s + wires to the finalized pad forms.
-Wire the two bigger pads
-Stuff the pads with cotton batting.
-Sew cloth and pleather over the pads.
