BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
1. Field of the Invention
The present invention relates to a glider with a music player.
2. Description of Related Art
Gliders are chairs which are able to generate rocking motion. When users sit in gliders, they can rock themselves back and forth to relax via gliding mechanisms of the gliders depending on their weights.
Users usually like to listen to music on walkmans or audio devices while sitting in the gliders. When they use walkmans, the users need to wear earphones, which may cause discomfort, especially after being worn for a long time. Furthermore, conventional gliders have no proper device for receiving the walkmans, so that users must hold the walkmans in hand and cannot enjoy the gliders with ease.
Additionally, when users listen to music on audio devices, there is difficult to achieve a desired stereo effect under the influence of locations of the audio devices.
- SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Hence, the inventors of the present invention believe that the shortcomings described above can be improved, and accordingly suggest the present invention which is of a reasonable design and is an effective improvement based on deep research and thought.
An object of the present invention is to provide a glider with a music player which has a music player mounted in a detachable back cushion of the glider so that users can enjoy music while sitting in the glider to relax themselves.
To achieve the above-mentioned object, a glider with a music player in accordance with the present invention is provided. The glider with a music player includes a gliding mechanism, a chair frame, a back cushion, a seat cushion, a plurality of speakers and a music controller. The gliding mechanism has a fixing portion and a gliding portion glidably mounted on the fixing portion. The chair frame has a seat board and a back board, the seat board is fixed on the top surface of the gliding portion and the back board is fixed at the rear side of the top surface of the seat board. The back cushion is detachably mounted on the back board of the chair frame and includes a foam layer, a surface layer and a covering layer, wherein the foam layer has a plurality of grooves formed therein, the foam layer is covered with the surface layer and the surface layer is covered with the covering layer. The seat cushion is detachably mounted on the seat board of the chair frame. The speakers are placed in the grooves of the back cushion, and the music controller is electrically connected with the speakers.
The efficacy of the present invention is as follows: firstly, when users sit in the glider with a music player, they can rock themselves back and forth to relax via the gliding mechanism; secondly, the speakers are embedded in the back cushion and electrically connected with the music controller, so users can connect the music controller to different audio sources to play music or other audio files; and further, music can be played at two sides of users' ears thereby providing a remarkable stereo effect for the users.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
FIG. 5 is a schematic view of the glider with a music player according to the present invention, during rocking motion.
Please refer to FIGS. 1-3 illustrating a glider with a music player 10 according to the present invention. The glider with a music player 10 includes a gliding mechanism 11, a chair frame 12, a back cushion 13, a seat cushion 14, an armrest cushion 15, a plurality of speakers 16 and a music controller 17.
The gliding mechanism 11 which is a linkage mechanism includes a fixing portion 111 and a gliding portion 1 12. The fixing portion 11 1 is placed on the ground, and the gliding portion 112 is glidably mounted on the fixing portion 111. The gliding mechanism 11 generally has the same structure as the prior art, which isn't an emphasis of the present invention, so detailed descriptions of the gliding mechanism 11 are omitted inhere.
The chair frame 12 includes a back board 121, an armrest frame 122 and a seat board 123. The seat board 123 is fixed on the top surface of the gliding portion 112, the back board 121 is fixed at the rear side of the top surface of the seat board 123, and the armrest frame 122 is fixed at the left side and the right side on the top surface of the seat board 123.
Please refer to FIG. 3, the back cushion 13 is detachably mounted on the back board 121 of the chair frame 12 via binding, adhesion or fastening etc. The back cushion 13 has a foam layer 131 made of polyester. The foam layer 131 has a plurality of grooves 1311 formed therein. In the embodiment, the foam layer 131 has two grooves 1311, corresponding to the number of the speakers 16. The two grooves 1311 are transversely symmetrically formed in the foam layer 131. Each groove 13 11 receives one speaker 16 therein, and a foam cover 13 12 is placed on the speaker 16 to cover the groove 1311. Each foam cover 1312 is formed by cutting the foam which is taken out from the foam layer 131 when the corresponding groove 1311 is formed. The speakers 16 are used for audio output. Each speaker 16 has a transmission line 161 which electrically connects the speaker 16 to the music controller 17.
When the speaker 16 and the foam cover 1312 are placed in a corresponding groove 1311, the foam layer 131 is covered with a surface layer 132 made of polyurethare. The surface layer 132 may make users feel comfortable when the users lean on the back cushion 13. The surface layer 132 may be covered with a covering layer 133 which is made of cloth or leather.
The seat cushion 14 is detachably mounted on the top surface of the seat board 123. The structure of the seat cushion 14 is similar to that of the back cushion 13, that is, the seat cushion 14 includes a foam layer 141, a surface layer 142 and a covering layer 143. The foam layer 141 is covered with the surface layer 142, and the surface layer 142 is covered with the covering layer 143. Further, the armrest cushion 15 is mounted on the armrest frame 122. The seat cushion 14 and the armrest cushion 15 can make users more comfortable when the users sit in the glider 10.
Please refer to FIG. 4, the music controller 17 may be fixed on the chair frame 12 and has a control panel 171. The control panel 171 has a power switch, a volume adjustment button, an audio signal connecting port and so on. The control panel 171 is electrically connected to a control circuit inside the music controller 17 to control turn-off/turn-on of the speakers 16, adjust the volume and transmit audio signals to the speakers 16 for output. Additionally, the speakers 16 and the music controller 17 are connected to a power cord 172. The power cord 172 may be connected to a socket for the main supply to transmit power to the music controller 17 and the speakers 16.
Users may connect different audio sources to the control panel 171 of the music controller 17, for example, CD players, MP3 players (MPEG-1 AUDIO LAYER 3 players), radios or TV sets, whereby the users can sit in the glider with a music player 10 and enjoy music.
Please refer to FIG. 5, when users sit in the glider with a music player 10, they can rock themselves back and forth to relax via the gliding mechanism 11. Furthermore, since the speakers 16 are embedded in the back cushion 13 and electrically connected with the music controller 17, users can directly use the music controller 17 and the speakers 16 to play different music or other audio files without earphones, thereby the users listen to music freely and easily. Also, the speakers 16 are embedded in two sides of the back cushion 13, which are just located beside a user' ears to provide a remarkable stereo effect for the user.
