I have my PJ hooked up to my HTPC (on it right now), so I have bright white backgrounds to see it more easily. In movies, it is not very apparent except in very white scenes. In 3d, however, it is much more noticeable and bothersome. The weave looks like another cloudy layer at the screen. It makes my eyes bug out. I could live with the weave otherwise. I was seeing screen door with my 720 PJ. I don't think I'm seeing it with the new PJ. I think I have 20/15 eyesight....(last time I was checked, which was a few years ago).
I'm clr on the cushions, did not think for a moment you would forget about those.
So, did I miss the joke? I hope not! Ha ha.. It is so hard to read people on the 'nets. If so, it is because I was concerned about the chairs being to hard. Why aren't all chairs made this way? Well, probably because they are slightly heavier and require more and better cushions. Regular chairs have more labor, but with jigs and repetition that is not a problem. For me, it makes sense to pay $20 more per chair for better cushions to save on labor.
The compressor and valves could be put outside the room, only the cylinder has to be in the room.
I have to admit that this is a unique idea. It is pretty far from practical, but so is a bunch of what I'm doing. I have not messed with hydraulics before, but I would think it would be more expensive and noisier (even if the noise only woke up the baby upstairs instead of interrupting my movie.)
Ha ha. I think using an electric motor is the way to go....you just have to find the right one.
I found these that I think would work...although maybe barely with both travel and force: Lift-Motor-Actuator-for-Pride-Mobility-Lift-Chairs
The price is about what I'm willing to pay, but I keep wondering about what happens if one breaks. I may or may not be able to source a replacement. With a cordless drill, it would be easy. I will do an experiment with some sound isolation over the next few days.
