Guy makes his own Daft Punk helmet

This 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.

Have some background music!
