Daft Punk - Thomas Bangalter Helmet Complete

  • Published on Sep 27, 2011
  • UPDATE: Yes. I can see through both of the helmets perfectly fine. A little bit of peripheral vision is lost in the gold helmet. In the silver helmet, this is the visibility from the inside looking out.
    Almost like looking through a screen door. Your eyes focus past the screen.
    Finally my Daft Punk Thomas Bangalter Helmet is complete. This is a continuation of my first video of Guy Manuel. This one showcases both helmets.
    Special Thanks to Volpin Props for the inspiration, tips and casting.
    Casting: Volpin Props (Harrison Krix)

    Electronics: Sure Electronics, Arduino Nano with Customized Matrix and Side boards

    I've been working on a Thomas helmet of my own, and I've almost got it except for the scrolling text and the visualizer effect at 1:17. Any advice?

      Yes. I can see out of those helmets. You will have to go to a prop maker to get one quoted as you don't find these in any store. Send me a PM and I can give you a good reference.

    They need to go to a convention with those and have someone film them, also turning the helmets into wearable speakers would be awesome and a voice changer would be cool, so they would be blasting daft punk music and walking around a convention (I bet a few people may mistake them for the real guys)

    I wish Daft Punk's helmets and music went back to their Discovery/J-Pop era. Judging by fan-made helmets, they wouldn't need to lug around huge backpacks to have awesome lights in theirs.

      I think OP is referring to Interstella 5555. I do agree, they never made J-Pop, but they worked closely with people in that area.

    I wonder if they can see those lights flashing inside of helmet - does it bother them?

    • tekparasite
      tekparasite  2 years ago

      Yes. I used the same materials. The Thomas one is actually a Volpin cast. The Guy Manuel helmet isn't, but close enough

    • tekparasite
      tekparasite  4 years ago +3

      The Guy Manuel helmet (gold) does not flash any light inside of the helmet. So, I really don't see what's flashing while wearing it. The Thomas helmet (silver) does flash some light but it's not that big of a problem.
