Daft Punk Helmet replica finally completed

[Harrison Krix] finished his Daft Punk Helmet replica and posted about it this week. We took a look at his work back in October but he’s come a long way to pull off a legendary build. Take three minutes after the break and see 17 months worth of work. So many skills were pulled together to make this happen; sculpting, mold making, painting, electronic design, mechanical design, and bad-ass-ery. Crammed in along with your noggin are a bag-full of LED boards but the Arduino that controls it all resides outside, in a project box tethered to the helmet. This is a masterpiece of socially-unwearable geek fashion.

  1. i would add a hook and loop fastener or someting to fix the helmet on the head, since in a festivcal or something, one cannot grap the helmet and run away

  2. @Gregman No, as awesome as that would be… his client’s name is Guy, but he lives in San Diego and is not a member of Daft Punk.

    @Bob Nobody I am very interested to know what you would have used for the light pattern and speed programming. There are probably many ways this helmet could have been done better or at least differently, and as he had never built a helmet before and was not previously familiar with programming, electrical board design, chroming, etc., the project has been a fun way to learn new things about prop-making. It’s a pretty good hobby to have that not only teaches you stuff but also rouses the rest of the online world to tell you how to do it better.

  3. That is INCREDIBLY AMAZING!! I want one!

    But I wouldn’t just want one made for me, I’d want to help build it, that’s just too much awesome not to participate in if you’re going to have something like that.

    Plus, he’s got a freaking Corgie, could this guy be any more awesome?

  4. I will pay you all the money in the world if you want! I want this replica so much! You sir, are a genius of modern days. Amazing job and I would kill too see a webpage that sells replicas. I’ve been looking for gloves, jackets and helms all week.

  5. LITERALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
