I wonder how long it took the originals to be built.
SolRo - 2010-07-23
the electronics are 100x more complex in the original.

on the other hand, they probably threw some good cash at the guy making it, so faster I bet.

THA SUGAH RAIN - 2010-07-23
Probably stronger and better, too. Anywho, the original was made from a motorcycle helmet and not some ridiculous mold. With the technical labor involved the price was like k if I remember correctly.

They were undoubtedly better, faster, stronger.

Ursa_minor - 2010-07-24
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.

The right kind of girl in general, IMHO!

17 months isn't that long if you think about it. I mean, this probably did this as a side project to his social lie and whatever else was going on.

Friend of mine makes fun of me for having not beaten a video game I've been playing on and off for 4 months now when I don't have better stuff to do, so 17 for a project of actual value doesn't seem so bad.

social is lie, helmet is truth

MrBuddy - 2010-07-23
He also built more than one of both helmet versions.

Hooker - 2010-07-23
Hobbies are retarded!

MrBuddy - 2010-07-27
You mean like... I dunno... watching evil videos on the Internet and commenting on them or something?

oddeye - 2014-03-09
Took me a lot longer than 17 months to paint my bretonnian army cause all my knights had to have their own colours and shit.

Cube - 2010-07-23
That's sad.
Squeamish - 2010-07-23
No. No it's not.

Cube - 2010-07-23
It's sad you think it isn't.

Ursa_minor - 2010-07-23
You do know he was commissioned to make it, right?

oswaldtheluckyrabbit - 2010-07-23

Squeamish - 2010-07-23
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.

SolRo - 2010-07-23
cube, you're on the internet instead of waterskiing with a naked model on your back, thus -you- are sad.

memedumpster - 2010-07-23
The skills alone required to make this helmet would vastly improve us all as people if we had them.

Cube - 2010-07-23
I think it's sad what the other people said above.

Urburos - 2010-07-23
I think its sad you need the last word.

Ursa_minor - 2010-07-24
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.

RockBolt - 2010-07-24
You're right, an hour or two a day of video games or TV would have been a far better use of time

Hooper_X - 2010-07-24
If by sad you mean FUCKING RAD then yeah.

Udderdude - 2010-07-24

Cube - 2010-07-28
I think it's sad you think you can only make a helmet for 17 months or have no hobbies at all.

Billie_Joe_Buttfuck - 2011-01-12
you suck

takewithfood - 2010-07-23
I especially like the step that involves a corgi. Looks like an important step.
zerobackup - 2010-07-24
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.
Caminante Nocturno - 2010-07-30
He should've put a fedora on top of it.
