Make A Daft Punk Helmet In Just 17 Months

YouTube Preview Image

This video chronicles an epic Daft Punk DIY project,  requiring vacuum-forming, custom programming, chroming and custom PCB’s.

Details below. via volpin:

This video chronicles my odyssey with replicating the iconic gold Daft Punk helmet worn by Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo. Over the process, I took hundreds of pictures, mostly because my crummy digital camera I shoot with has a bum autofocus. What you see are the collection of all of these images, and a little hint of video as well.

Programming for the helmet code was done by James Moss.
Chroming work courtesy of Creations n’ Chrome
Custom PCBs printed by batchPCB.com (designed by me)
Visor vacuum-forming performed by Mike Iverson

THIS PROJECT WAS A ONE-OFF. I AM NOT TAKING ORDERS FOR DUPLICATES.
