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!
