Mobile Outdoor Entertainment Center

  • September 17, 2014


I had an outdated 36" Sony Trinitron HDTV (one of the first HDTV's to come to market), which I no longer used indoors, however, due to it's awesome picture quality I wanted to still make great use of it and decided to use it for outdoor entertainment. Although, I didn't set out & draw up blueprints, I only had mental pic. of what it would look like. I didn't run into any major obstacles during the build considering I had no blueprints, however, what surprised me during this project is how with a little brainstorming and ingenuity one can build a custom product tailored to meet the individuals goals and expectations of the finished product, without having to upgrade to expensive electronic devices at a greater expense. Not only did the product serve for TV entert., I also added a receiver with a surround sound, Ipod, Ipad connection, cable TV box, Smart Wi-Fi blu-Ray DVD player and small PA system. So you get to watch TV, listen to music through your preferred music device, watch DVD Movies, access internet via WI-FI and all desired applications (Youtube, Pandora, Netflix, Etc.) through Smart DVD Player and last serves as a Karaoke machine with TV screen lyric playback and microphone via PA system. And as noted in the project title, I added wheels, so I can easily move it anywhere in the backyard or patio. The feedback has been awesome as well as the entertainment! I will use more ingenuity and existing owned products to build around for my future projects.
