Voodoo Machine Earclip Mod
Hi. Remember me? I just got back from a long sabbatical in the The Clone's
native home of Peru. Who cares, you ask? Well, no one.
You may or may not have heard of the Voodoo machine.
It's quite amazing and very safe, but I'm not here to tell you all about
what it can do, you can move your fat little fingers across your
pubic-hair-infested keyboard all on your own and learn about it.
VMB is proven safe. However, I am not a doctor, despite what my mother
tells the in-laws. If you die after reading this file, or your brain leaks
out of your ears, please don't come after me. I am no way responsible for
any harm as a result of using this design.
If you've recently purchased one of these devices, you'll receive a tube
of conductive goo, the device, and a set of earclips. Now, the signals are
passed through these earclips to your brain. If, like myself, you find the
earclips bothersome, you might want to make yourself a set of patented
Wizbone Neck Probes. Well, it's not patented so go ahead and steal my
You need the following:
1 wire coat hanger
1 length of tubing
1 roll of tape
Several sizes of heat-shrink tubing
1 set of earclips
2 1cm wide thin strips of conductive metal
The coat hanger can be found in your girlfriend's closet, and I found
suitable tubing under the hood of an Escort in the windshield washer
Cut a length of wire from the coat hanger that's long enough to make a
nice swooping curve from the back of one of your ears to the other. Then,
cut a length of the tubing approximately the same length. Cover the hanger
with the tubing and seal up the ends, either with smaller sized heatshrink
or tape or whatever. You don't want any coat hanger exposed as it might
become a conductor and that's not its purpose.
Now, place the pieces of metal in the earclips as shown.

Place the clip with the strip of metal onto an end of the coathanger
with the strip of metal sticking over the edge about 2 cm or so. Then,
slide a piece of heatshrink over the assembly to secure it. You should
now have only the tiny strip of metal exposed with everything else covered
Repeat on the other side.
Now you should have a u-shaped piece of rubberized coathanger with metal
strips sticking out the ends attached to wires going to your voodoo

To use it, you place it behind you head, with the two metal strips behind
your ears. This is actually quite a good design as it touches your skull,
which is described as an ideal way to have the signals passed through
Enjoy, and if you don't like it, this design keeps the earclips intact
allowing you to disassemble it without ruining them.
[PS - I wrote this entire file while using the voodoo machine.
I feel so good.]
