Daft Punk LED Helmet Project

 

Instructables member Adamu25 made a great looking Daft Punk LED Helmet Project for a festival held on the Isle of Wight in the UK called Bestival. He has documented the build so you could build your own. The LEDs that you see in the face mask are light strips that are meant to be used on cars. No matter where they were supposed to be used they sure look right at home on this project.
