I wonder how long it took the originals to be built.
I read on this guy's blog that the originals cost 65,000 dollars.
That is awesome.
Though, in retrospect, I imagine that most conversations with most girls go like this:
"Oh my god, is that the Daft Punk helmet?"
"That is fuckin' rad. Where did you get it?"
"Actually, I made it."
"What! No way! That's amazing! It must have taken forever."
"About 17 months, yeah. First I made like a clay mould that was about the right size and shaped it so that it-"
"- Wait, woah, hold on. 17 months? You spent 17 months making a helmet?"
"Yeah, pretty cool, right?"
"Jesus, get a life."
But I guess this sort of thing is a magnet for the kind of girl that actually thinks 17 months is worth it, and that's clearly the right kind of girl for this guy.
He also built more than one of both helmet versions.
You mean like... I dunno... watching evil videos on the Internet and commenting on them or something?
It's sad you think it isn't.
You do know he was commissioned to make it, right?
Yes, Cube, it's sad that he has talent and both the energy and willpower to finish a complicated and interesting project that takes more than a single weekend to complete.
cube, you're on the internet instead of waterskiing with a naked model on your back, thus -you- are sad.
I think it's sad what the other people said above.
I posted this mostly because the skill involved. Like daft punk or not, if you've ever tried molding/casting/sculpting, you'd recognize the quality of work this guy has done. I'm most impressed with the symmetry he managed to get without halving the entire model first.
I have no idea why that's sad.
Hi my name is Cube and my hobbies are WAIT NO HOBBIES ARE FOR FAGS OH GOD WHAT AM I DOING MOM WARNED ME ABOUT THIS
I think it's sad you think you can only make a helmet for 17 months or have no hobbies at all.
I especially like the step that involves a corgi. Looks like an important step.
Yes it's awesome. Yes it's kind of weird. Truth be told I like the other guy's helmet better....but still this is absolutely kickass.

He should've put a fedora on top of it.
