Daft Punk Led

Ok so i've just thought about this, the new tron movie will feature the new daft punk helmet which actually seem easier. And that would be the newer thing that would be on mind in my opinion. So the Daft Punk helmet i wish to make is the one on the left. They help i am asking for is the required LED information. Guy-Manuel helmet with the 6x24 bright white LEDs. Thats all im looking for to do now , the Thomas one of the left im going to help my friend do, but i would like to be able to figure the Guy-Manuel one first .I just need to know where to look to figure out where to start on the LED electrical lightning part. So any assistance is need at this point. I would like to hear all opinions.

punk/goth style of clothes

My style of dress is what you could call a combonation of punk and goth. i like doing things like making my own clothing and jewlery, by following inctructables of course, but there is not a lot that fits my style. if making clothes is something that you do well please make an inctructable on punk/goth clothing.                            thanks.

Kiteman Recommends: Punk IPA

I just came across a beer (bought in Tesco) from a brewery that is new to me, but I'm definitely going to keep an eye on.The beer is Punk IPA: Post Modern Classic Pale Ale, from the BrewDog brewery in Fraserburgh, Scotland. A fresh, clean beer, with an ABV of 6%, it's an easy drinker.According to their website, they have a range of beers, mainly ales and stouts, but with one pilsner as well. They are all modern, pure-ingredient takes on classic brews.I'm not a beer expert, but I am a beer snob. Based on this IPA, and the brewers' Maker attitude, I plan on making BrewDog a regular presence in my beer stocks.Even better news for our resident brewers (Lemonie and moaner70 to name two), they have a vacancy - if you have it in you, and can commute to Scotland, They are looking for a new brewer.

Daft Punk helmet from baseball helmet

Hi everyone! So I read and reread many threads and have a few questions about a building a Daft Punk helmet for hallowe'en. Now I know all of you are probably saying "pfffft not another one" But mine will be different and you will see once it is done. It is more of a Daft Punk Inspired helmet. Anyways, the helmet will be Thomas's helmet which will be started from a low profile rawlings baseball helmet. But will have a few changes to it from the original ones. My question is: After applying the bondo onto the helmet, to strengthen the inside, do I use bondo again? spray foam? or nothing since the baseball helmet is basically still there. Thanks! And I will post photos of progress. Antoine

How to Construct a GUY Daft Punk Helmet?

Hey guys, I was wondering how you would build a GUY Daft Punk helmet out of a motorcycle helmet. I have purchased a really nice motorcycle helmet for $30 and I started last night to make an outline of the golden frame that surrounds the helmet. I was planning on making this out of cardboard, and then after measuring it to make sure it fits the helmet precisely, covering it with Bondo. Once that was done, I was going to construct the plastic visor, which is where the trouble comes in. Does anyone have any suggestions on how that visor can be made? I have no idea how to do vacuum form, which is unfortunate. Any answers would be appreciated. Thank you.

DIY Daft Punk helmet is awesome

Harrison Krix has made the best DIY version of the Daft Punk helmets, this is the Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo helmet, that I've seen so far. He made it over the course of 17 months and while that's quite a long time the results are pretty stellar. Check out the video with several hundred photos of the build process and click the link below for more info and pics. Daft Punk: FINAL!

SKUNKPUNK turns 15!

Ok, This is a bit of a crisis. My oldest son, Skunkpunk, turns 15 today! I turned 37 last week. I'm feeling OLD. I only realized that I was no longer a teenager a couple of years ago, and now I'm having to deal with being a parent of a teen. For me, 15 was a big year. Learning to drive, my first serious girlfriend, etc. I'm not ready to deal with Skunkpunk's teenage-roller-coaster. So anyway, If anyone has any advice for us we could use it. I need advice on how to parent a teen, and he needs advice on how to survive the teen years.

Daft Punk Table Replica driver board reverse reconstruction.

I'm in love with the daft punk table: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-a-Daft-Punk-Table-Replica/?ALLSTEPSI'm actually making a wall hanging rather than a table because theres no room in my studio for another table.The author of that instructable didn't include the microcontroller program or a circuit for the driver board. From the description (and looking at another site) we can tell that it uses a a couple I2C port expanders connected to a transistor array. I have both the PFC port expander and the ULN2803A in my parts box, but I think it can be made cheaper, faster, and expandable.I want to ditch the I2C bus. Why? 1. Its slow (100 or 400 khz), not that more is needed, but what about bigger boards?2. Its bit intensive: each chip update requires a)start signal, b) address byte, c)port setting byte, d)stop signal. That's more than 8 bytes of bits per table update.3. Its expensive: the i2c bus needs 2 pullup resistors, and you have to route Vcc to them on the PCB. I2C peripherals are a bit pricey ($1+ for the PFC i2c port expander). You need a UC with hardware I2C, or write a I2C software routine, etc. 4. Its not expandable beyond the assigned number of I2C addresses. The PFC chips have a limited number of address selections (determined by the state of 3 pins). If all addresses have been used then a second I2C bus would have to be added.These goals can all be accomplished with a handy chip I learned about in lady ada's bike POV instructable, the 74HC(T)595. The 595 is a serial to parallel port expander with 8 output bits. The interface is a simple 3 line affair with serial data/clock lines and a latch that puts the data on the pins. Now the cool part: several can be connected end-to-end so that you can create a chain with hundreds of extra outputs. Bits can be clocked in at up to 20Mhz, so large or multiplexed grids are possible.Why its good:1. Its fast, up to 20 Mhz2. Simple interface - clock in only the bits needed then set the latch. 26 bits, <4 bytes per refresh.3. Its cheap: 0.33 per chip, easy 3 wire interface can be operated with microcontroller, PC parallel port, or even buttons.4. Massively expansion potential, multiple chips can be chained for a disgusting number of outputs.The circuit is pretty basic. It only includes those things needed for the graphics card : I/O expanders, transistor array, connection headers. Power supply and control unit are separate components. The 595 has a 'blank' pin, it seems to reset all the chips to a known state when pulled low. I wanted to make it available for a 'more complete' design, but I also included a jumper so that it can be manually disabled for use in simpler implementations.The 3d is just for fun: the PCB is mostly unrouted.Any comments or suggestions? Has anyone used the 595 before? I've ordered a few to play with, but have not yet used them.

Abney Park: (The semi-steampunk/weird genre of music group) :D

Abney Park comes from an era that never was, but one that we wish had been. An era where airships waged war in the skies, and corsets and cummerbunds were proper adventuring attire. They've picked up their bad musical habits, scoundrelous musicians, and anachronistically hybridized instruments from dozens of locations and eras that they have visited in their travels and thrown them into one riotous dervish of a performance. Expect clockwork guitars, belly dancers, flintlock bassists, middleastern percussion, violent violin, and Tesla powered keyboards blazing in a post- apocalyptic, swashbuckling, Steampunk musical mayhem. - quote from they're myspace page Band WebsiteBand Myspace

This video is a clip from Daft Punk's movie Electroma with a different song by them called Make Love.I find this clip very saddening. To get this jist of the movie watch the second clip (the video doesn't really start till 33 seconds in) and it has pretty good music! Basically the robot with the silver helmet wants to become human and the robot in the gold helmet is his best friend. They try and become human in a robot world. any thoughts?

Need some advice on fixing power issues with my instructable

So I built an Atari punk synth using instructions on this site and made it a bit more advanced. It has six 555 timers and button controls. Now I would like to power this thing with a 9volt wall plug, the same thing I use for my effect pedals, but I have crazy power issues when I set it up this way. It works fine when I just use a 9 volt battery, but when it's set up to be used with a 9 volt wall plug it seems like its getting way to much power. The sound goes crazy and it blows out my LEDs even though I have resistors on them. I've tried putting a resistor on the power jack, but it doesn't sound right when I do that and it still doesn't work right. So I'm curious what's exactly going on here. Regular effect pedals that run on 9 volts work fine with the wall plug and even the instructables on here say you can use them. But for some reason this thing only will work with a battery. Could it be the parts I'm using? I have a feeling it has to do with wattage and my parts just can't handle it.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Pirate Station Robot Helmet

Hello everyone! Name's DJ_DAN. Just need some URGENT HELP! I just saw some videos of a Drum & Bass Festival called Pirate Station Network. It's robot head design really got me, and I like to make a fully wearable DJ  helmet with animated LEDs for the eyes, and a black grid-ish metal mesh for the mouth. Something like this: http://www.featurepics.com/FI/Thumb300/20100216/Black-Metal-Grid-1460869.jpg And really basic animations for the eyes, like fading in & out, flashing, standing still, etc. The base could be made from fiberglass or mabye carbon fiber. The eye "lens" maybe could be made from plexiglas or something like that. And the "headphones" could be the part of the helmet, with built-in headphones. I just slighty edited the design of the original PSN robot helmet, which looks like something like this: http://www.4shared.com/photo/3miIkBII/robothelmetdesign.html PLEASE! I just want to know who could do one for me or at least how could I start to make the helmet! PLEASE HELP! (And sorry for my English...)
