How To Make a Daft Punk Helmet

See and download the full gallery on posterous

Harrison Krix, is a rather skilled prop maker. At least he seems to know his way around “sculpting, resin casting, chroming and vacuum forming” – and that’s an awful lot more than we even understand.

So, when commissioned to produce an exact replica of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo’s famous Daft Punk helmet, Krix didn’t baulk at the idea – or perhaps he did at first – but set about spending the next 17 months (yes, 17) doing so, with of course, many trials and tribulations along the way.

Future Photography from the Sci-Fi Airshow

Love this, but especially when the 3D models are in the ‘real world’ environments. The space shots on the site don’t really carry the effect as well. Click the images for a larger view.

The build of the We Like Small iPod wall

The iPod Wall from welikesmall on Vimeo.

We Like Small built a wall made from 20 iPods and built an app that display photos from a library randomly across all iPhones or as a large image split between iPhones. Future releases will allow all sorts of external user interaction.

Plenty of blurb on the Vimeo site.

They’ve got a nice website too –
