Adam Savage’s Star Trek Captain’s Chair Build

Check out the amazing Star Trek captain’s chair that Adam Savage and the gang from Tested.com built!  Adam created the chair to be a nearly perfect replica of Captain Kirk’s chair from the original Star Trek series, and in this video he goes about making the switches and lights fully functional using a Teensy microcontroller, NeoPixels, and more.  It’s great to see a long build video that shows the troubleshooting and the triumphs of undertaking a complex project.  The end result is amazing and Adam can’t help but feel like a giddy child when he dons the full Star Trek captain garb and takes his seat in the captain’s chair.  Nice work!

If you look closely too there are lots of great Adafruit parts in the build, like perma-protoboards and awesome bus bars.  Can you spot other Adafruit parts in the build?  Post them up in the comments!
