3D Printed Daft Punk Helmet in One Month | PART 3

  • Published on Aug 2, 2018
  • Hey world! I made a 3D printed DAFT PUNK Helmet!!!
    Thank you 96Boards for sponsoring this video!
    I made a Daft Punk Helmet for Maker Faire Bay Area 2018 and it took me a month to finish.
    In this video I used a Dragonboard and a sensor mezzanine to make the addressable LEDs light up to music and sounds, and also preprogrammed a few rainbow patterns. Then, I tinted the visor, painted the helmet, and put it all together in a hotel room in San Francisco. Check it out to see some MakerFaire Bay Area footage!

    • Estefannie Explains It All
      Estefannie Explains It All  2 months ago

      You can. But you will need to redo my code entirely. Everything is controlled by the python script in the Dragon board and passes the frequency levels through serial to the mezzanine board (that runs the .ino file)

  • MajChronic

    Stellar job.
    One tip for tinting visors in the future...spray the inside of the visor as opposed to the outside. There's no need to clear-coat the inside as nobody will see it and it's not needed on the outside. You also won't chip or scratch the tint should you bang or drop it and can easily buff out small outside surface scratches with automotive wax. I've done it on rc car bodies to protect the paint and it gives the visor more depth of colour because you're looking through that thin layer of clear.
    Otherwise, fanfreakintastic work.

    Nice, saw other daft punk helmets, but this stands out as you can see wearing it. A trade off for less lights, but still worth it.

    Awesome job on the helmet! I'm currently working on making one, the instructables guide doesn't cover the electronics portion very well. Do you have a bill of materials used or any recommendations or a guide forthe making the LEDS portion? I saw AlexplusLeds, but his kits are a bit pricey.
