Solder a little wire to each RAM pin, and you end up with this
When a CD is playing and you connect these wires together, crazy stuff happens. I highly recommend grabbing some alligator clips and playing with your machine at this point. It’s loads of fun!
There are switches attached to two of the pins because I’m crappy at soldering. I accidentally broke the connections to two of the pins while attempting to solder to the tiny contacts, so I went ahead and chucked on/off switches for those pins in there while I was fixing them.
And that’s it! The electronic component of this project is now complete. You can all go home now. Next: putting it in a pretty box!
