Ever wanted to have your own Daft Punk helmet? If so, forget picking up some cheap replica. You can in turn do like these guys did and just make your own.
One particular artist and Daft Punk enthusiast decided to team up with his uncle to make an insanely tricked-out Guy Manuel helmet. Not only does the thing look incredibly legitimate, but it is also filled with cool features.
A product of two years of hard work, the GM01, which is handmade, boasts an overall custom design, PCB electronics, WiFi, MIDI, motion/audio interaction, 250 RGB LEDs, and a huge programming job. It then acts as a light instrument designed for composing and generating music for the eyes, all housed on a one-of-a-kind high quality redesigned Guy Man helmet.
The eye-catching rainbow slides have been made from curved LED diffusers, and instead of flat acrylic panels, a curved chassis follows the visor curvature.
Upon connecting the unit to your computer via USB, you can then live compose new LED animations in any music/MIDI production software or workstation, thus giving you complete control over the color, brightness, saturation and timing of the LEDs without any coding.
Finally, the helmet is powered by a 14 Amps LoveProps gauntlet, awarding with up to five hours of wear on a single charge.
