This Fan-Made Daft Punk Helmet is Blowing Our Minds

There are fans, and then there are fans–People who take their love for an artist to an undefinable scale. Prop team LoveProps obviously falls into the second category, because their Daft Punk helmet is an insane work of art.

Daft Punk’s helmets are becoming as iconic as their music, and the producers underneath them (Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter), are never seen without them.

Even people who aren’t fans recognize these helmets.

There’s no telling what inspired LoveProps to create a new version of Guy-Manuel’s helmet known as the GMo1, but considering it took over a year to craft, it was definitely not done on a whim.

Team member “Future Guy Mike” described the process on the LoveProps blog:

The designing, building and programming of the GM01 took more than one year of daily work. Finishing the unit with the desired quality was a huge oddissey. A hand made sculpting model, primed cast, great attention to the detail, perfect scale and custom electronics, code and libraries, make this unit more than a helmet.

The right concept, might be, an interactive light instrument. An easy to play and fully customizable device for composing music for the eyes. Everything housed on a high quality replica of the iconic GM helmet, paying special attention to the geometry lines and curves for making it such a unique and special piece.

He then links to even more blog posts that walk through the entire painstaking process of crafting the helmet, which you can check out here.
