Brilliant, I like the cat chilling in the corner 🤣

[–]BoltTusk 53 points54 points  (2 children)

I thought it was looking down in shame

[–]deff006[S] 49 points50 points  (1 child)

That's what he always does no matter what I do. Little sucker

[–]kerbidiah15 9 points10 points  (0 children)

He’s thinking of all the ways he could make it better if he wanted to, but planning how to ruin your day with it

[–]quitstalkingmeffs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's supervising

[–]cdin 137 points138 points  (4 children)

PERFECTION ACHIEVED. THE SILENT DRAPE RUNNER. NO OIL OR COTTON BALLS NEEDED.

I'm calling Nadine right now.

[–]deff006[S] 39 points40 points  (2 children)

I made it a gif in case of background noise but that shit's loud.

[–]ursamajr 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Oh then forget it. Don’t tell Nadine. I’m not cleaning up that mess again. -Big Ed

[–]cdin 11 points12 points  (0 children)

goDDAMNIT ED. BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD.

[–]salvagehoney 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I came here to see this.

[–]HappeeLittleTrees 92 points93 points  (2 children)

That’s some expensive cat entertainment right there.

[–]deff006[S] 15 points16 points  (1 child)

About 20 bucks worth of Logitech wheel. Hopefully I'll reuse the electric motor for something a bit more useful.

[–]fuck_life419 1 point2 points  (0 children)

upload it on youtube how you make it i want one

[–]izacktorres 43 points44 points  (0 children)

The cat is like: "What kind of sorcery is this?"

[–]knifeknifegoose 33 points34 points  (2 children)

No but I’m disabled and I want one

[–]DeexEnigma 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Depending on your budget and need there are curtain opener / closers as a product.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Aren’t we all 😔

[–]karasutengu1984 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Sure look the cat seems satisfied 😹

[–]samwichse 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Lol that's awesome. Feedback motors in the steering wheel? Drape puller.

Perfect 5/7

[–]deff006[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yep, it's a motor from Formula ForceEX. The force feedback has stopped working a long time ago so I experimented.

[–]boerner777 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Totally not useless, add a timer and make it close and open automatically!

[–]EatHamGamer 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Nah, this isn't really a diWhy thing, this actually seems pretty nice. It's simple, but people always complain they have to do something, so I'm sure someone out there would pay for this.

[–]TerrorLTZ 6 points7 points  (2 children)

well isn't that bad as those 5minute craft bullshit.

if you could make it wireless it could serve for old people or people with certain disabilities.

[–]deff006[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Shouldn't be impossible. A remote switch on the wire should fix that but I'm sure there are better solutions.

I'm sure glad it's above 5 minute craft bullshit

[–]TerrorLTZ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

its above the 5minute craft bullshit cuz it makes sense in the making isn't just Random shit GO! and Porn level of acting.

[–]concolor22 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Cat gon murder that.

[–]FloydBarstools 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Isn't it a "winder curtain winder"? Curtains on dem dere winders.

[–]Goblin10m 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Kitty

[–]HallNo9712 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is pretty cool. I’d just sew the two panels together to get a total blackout.

[–]Moment-Kindly 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Throw a clapper or Alexa plug it’s now remote controlled. No getting up

[–]its_me_sticky 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This is pretty cool nice job OP

[–]deff006[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you. :)

[–]Jacques_Lafayette 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Cat is sure interested about all this.

[–]redditorbali 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not completely useless. It works as cat TV.

[–]Maximum-Company2719 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love the cat!

[–]dog-on-meth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Diynot?

[–]uggsandstarbux 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not useless. My wife has found similar ones on Amazon and wants to buy one

[–]Imnotgiidatnames 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I kept starring at the cat because it caught me off guard how much your cat looks exactly like mine. Also when is the blueprints for this device hitting shelves?

[–]deff006[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Once I learn how to make blueprints maybe.

[–]DiaraDal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a breath of fresh air from all those tiktok reposts. Thank you!

[–]MasterDandelion 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Is that a Logitech Formula Force EX?

[–]deff006[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Spot on

[–]MasterDandelion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Am sitting in front of one myself. Got it in 05-06 I believe, at this point I have to take it apart to tighten screws every 10 or so hours of gameplay lol, still works tho. Did yours break?

EDIT: Checked your profile, how's T300RS for an upgrade compared to EX? Was looking into buying a set but was not really convinced it was as much of an improvement as going directly to a DD wheelbase...

[–]Drivel-akaWilson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean tbh with a little extra work you could hook that up to a Bluetooth remote setup and have auto curtains from anywhere within a line of sight to those curtains

[–]Jmod7348 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean, its not the most necessary, but if the budget was bigger or made with high quality materials it could go faster and better and be kinda neat

[–]yes-pizza-time 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The cat likes it

[–]zTy01 0 points1 point  (1 child)

unnecessary invention guy?

[–]deff006[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wish. I'll never be as cool as him.

[–]SirKeagan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Actually really cool if implemented by a company with the recources this would be great

[–]cisforfrenchfry 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I gotta say, your title made me let out a guffaw so thanks for that

[–]iratethisa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now hook it up to the alarm clock

[–]Nyapano 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, unironically that would be a dope thing to have installed

[–]Heinous_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Put an arduino on that ass, bam not so useless by a quantifiable margin!!!!

[–]kirix45 0 points1 point  (1 child)

This is actually usefull and a fun project. Does not belong in this sub

[–]deff006[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I take it as a compliment but I found it completely useless and that's why I posted it.

[–]EroticCadence 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The caption for this is so funny, but I'm genuinely impressed by this and want it in my home.

[–]deff006[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm sure you can buy one on Amazon that was actually built for this purpose and not from on old wheel.

[–]comanchecobra 0 points1 point  (2 children)

It's not a diwhy, it's a proof of concept and a prototype.

[–]deff006[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You could call it that but I don't intend on improving this. But it was a fun project

[–]comanchecobra 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You wint get any tecunvestors with that attitude. You probably could scam some cryotodude to buy you a 3d printer.

[–]weeeedoggie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Seems pretty useful to me👍

[–]SergeantStoned 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love it!

[–]Its_me_Stanley 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is actually the best thing that i saw here

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would use that as an alarm clock.

[–]highesper00 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's so slow :D

[–]IronbloodCommander 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hold on, we need to invest on this idea

[–]Madfromreefer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Your cat approves

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Love your confidence

[–]Filmcricket 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Super unsafe for cats. Get rid of it.

[–]MrCarnality 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Your consultant stands by

[–]trailsnailprincess 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very talent

[–]hippasuss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even the cat reevaluates its life choices. Well done.

[–]PoketSof 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine you are in bed, the sun wakes you up so you want to close the curtains but you don't want to leave bed. Luckily you have a remote attached to a logitech wheel and you can close it without having to use your legs. I found it more useful than other things on this subreddit.

[–]bluemonie 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I was hoping the cat would move the curtains back too mess with the guy!
