My kid has a toy car he can sit on, ride and play some music by pressing a huge button. He loves it! And he loves that music.

I don't mind the music, but I do mind how loud it is. When it's playing it's VERY hard to understand what other people in the same room are saying. Now imagine that car starts playing while you're still asleep....

It can scare the shit out of someone! Not to mention it is annoying af.

So today I dug up my never-used kit of eclectronics compoents and some tools. Spent an hour or so and installed a potentiometer in that car from hell! Now I can alter its volume.

I know it's not much, but I feel as if I were an engineer :) That's a nice feeling. I like it.

Just wanted to share

    @magicMirror I installed a potentiometer in one of my co-workers brain.
    Come to think of it, I haven't seen him for a while... Hmmm 🤔

    @netikras Your story just reminded me of a lot of videos I have been seeing lately in a facebook group called "The squatting Union" xD it's videos where they build useful things with very limited resources lol

    I would suggest to your kid that the volume is too loud at times, so he understands that. I don't know how old he is, but they're remarkably pliable. Of course, he could just spit his chocolate milk in your face.
