When Chaotic Computing set out to build a
media server, a wrestling theme seemed like a good idea.
The Jakks Pacific
WWE Stunt Action Ring looked
to be the right size. The goals for the project became to
build the media server while still attempting to retain
the "Bounce Off Mat"
First, we unpacked the Stunt Action Ring and
inspected it, seeing how the mat bounced utilizing elastic
strings strung across the corners of the frame. The hard
drive was velcroed to the bottom of the mat and tested to
see if it would weigh down the mat too much for the elastic
The ring itself obviously had no support for
any of the computer parts that would need to be inserted
within the frame, so two slats of basswood were cut and
painted black to match the bottlom of the ring.
The black slats were then nailed into the
bottom of the ring to give the motherboard a firm support.
