    ok enouf of that lol well check this out
    THE MAKING OF…THE DAFT PUNK HELMETS
    These helmets were commissioned by the punk band Daft Punk for a music video. Over the years, LED Effects has received many inquiries from people who wanted to purchase their own helmet. Unfortunately, these helmets are custom designed stage props and cost over $14,000. While the helmets are reasonably simple in design, the cost of labor and materials make it impractical to mass produce and market them. In addition, Daft
    Punk owns the copyright and concept rights to the helmets, so there may be additional licensing fees to pay. In short, yes, we can build you a helmet, but it will cost you thousands of dollars and take a year to produce. Here is how the helmets were made:
    1. A model shop cast the face of the musician. This was used to create a bust which was
    used as a template for the design.
    2. The next step was to modify a motorcycle helmet. The body was cut away to allow for
    cables and electronics. Two pin holes were provided so the wearer could see out.
    3. Clay models were created for all the unique parts. This included a back pack and an arm
    band controller.
    4. Electronic displays were designed using prototype PC board materials.
    5. The LED display panels were assembled by placing each LED one-by-one into a plastic
    sheet and glued into place. Each LED required three feet of wiring to connect it to power
    and control circuitry. The finished panel was bolted to the helmet frame.
    6. The LED cabling was routed around the “ears” of the helmet and out the back. The
    helmet cables led down to the backpack where the main controller board was located.
    7. The system was originally powered by batteries, but this was later switched over to a
    power cord system.
    8. The control keypad on the armband was a custom manufactured PC board.
    9. Exterior plastic molding and finishing materials were custom manufactured by a special
    effects studio to complete the helmet. Once these pieces were added, the helmet details
    were touched up with paint.
    The helmets were used to produce a music video. As far as we are aware, the units are
    still in use for performances.

    DO U THINK ITS WORK IT?!?!?!?!? lol im not saying im gonna buy them they they do look sick!!
