While you might not be able to tell from the picture, that outdoor love seat has wheels underneath it. And that Coconut — yeah — It controls it.
We’re starting to like this [Rodger Cleye] fellow. First he brings us the awesome [Marty Mcfly] quadcopter-hoverboard — and now this. He had originally converted his old recliner into a RC comfortable transportation chair in attempt to sell it at a garage sale, and after that decided a one-seater was just too boring. It’s much more fun to lounge with a friend while cruising down the street in your love seat.
It runs off of a 24V DC system with two 15aH SLA batteries. This gets it going to about 5mph, and the battery lasts well over 2 hours. The coconut has a straw sticking out of it which is actually the joystick — a very discrete control unit!
Still not satisfied, he decided to throw on a 25W audio system as well, so they can play their Hawaiian music while weirding out the neighbors. Take a look after the break.

What a great way to get pulled over!
I love these things…while you can absolutely get a ticket for having an “unsafe vehicle” like this on the road (I know, he’s 50ft from the house), it’s a pretty fun, cozy amenity for the house! ;)
that looks like a private rd inside a gated community so no ticket applies
Needs a patio umbrella, I burn easy.
Let’s top that; a potato umbrella!
Googling potato umbrella didn’t help me at all…
Is this a Rihanna thing?
While that’s definitely a discrete controller, I don’t think that’s what you meant to say.
You’ll never beat Edd China’s motorised sofa, because not only does it have a proper engine inside, enabling it to hit almost 90mph, it is also street legal in Britain, conforming to all regulations. Check this video out http://youtu.be/aWfCczHfYSQ
