How to make a Daft Punk helmet in 17 months

It looks so cool! Too bad he isn't taking orders for duplicates, i would definitely want one xD
This video chronicles my odyssey with replicating the iconic gold Daft Punk helmet worn by Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo. Over the process, I took hundreds of pictures, mostly because my crummy digital camera I shoot with has a bum autofocus. What you see are the collection of all of these images, and a little hint of video as well.

Programming for the helmet code was done by James Moss.
