Volpin Props Daft Punk’s Thomas helmet

Meet Harrison Krix, a 28 year old Graphic Designer living in Atlanta, GA. In his free time, he designs and creates replica props from movies and videogames. His work includes props from titles such as Portal, Mass Effect, Final Fantasy, Iron Man and more!

The video above documents about 4 months of work in creating a replica of Thomas Bangalter’s helmet from Daft Punk. The piece has over 350 LEDs, can run over 4 hours on a single charge, and the matrix is capable of being updated on-the-fly with a custom programmed iOS app.

For more info on the build and process, check out Volpin Props.

The video features music by Madeon – “Pop Culture”, an artist we featured on S&D.

The Daft Punk leather suit, was fabricated by Catherine Jones of God Save The Queen Fashions.

Programming for the helmet code was done by James Moss.

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such fantastic information being shared freely out there.
