A faithful replica of Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo’s helmet,  hand-sculpted with custom PCB electronics, Wifi, MIDI, motion and audio interaction, and 250 RGB LEDs.

It took master builders Love Props a year to create but they’ve released full build instructions so you can make your own.

Bless ’em.

Prefer Thomas Bangalter’s LED lid?

Neko Motorcycle Helmets by Russian based designer Nitrinos Motostudio. Fully customisable, with perforated ears that the manufacturer claims will not affect wind resistance up to 100km/h, the helmets are available for between €450 and €530 each.

Deadmau5 probably wouldn’t like them.

headcageIn an attempt to quit his two-packs-a-day 26 year smoking habit, 42-year-old İbrahim Yücel from the western Turkish province of Kütahya has taken to wearing a helmet-like wire cage on his head, locked on two sides.

According to Hurriyet Daily News, İbrahim’s been wearing the thing since last Friday, and managed to make it through the weekend without smoking.

No word on how he’s done since.
