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.

What's the best way to handle a local gang of punks?

My neighborhood has a local bunch of kids who come around riding bikes, and taunting our dogs. they also swear loudly (like, hearing the "f" word from 50 yards away, shouted by an 8 year old.) and i would really like to find a nice, non-violent way to keep these kids from riding their bikes in the field by my house. does anyone have any ideas that won't get me arrested or egged?

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!

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.

Questions about how to make the daft punk table

https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-a-Daft-Punk-Table-Replica/ I am wondering how hard of a project this would be to take on.  A little information I have not built a great deal of things in my life and don't have any electrical background. I really want to make this though and have nothing but time at the moment. Does anyone think this would be doable without any knowledge of how to build LED boards and just trying to do it by the instructions? I only ask because I don't to go out and buy all this and than find out its way over my head, or also if anyone wants to give me a starter LED project I could try that first I just don't know where to find simple projects.  Thanks for your guys help and this truly is a amazing website.

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.

This is a 3" cabinet pull. It caught my eye as a super steam punk component. Just imagine it with two LEDs inside the cage. Anyway how is it made ? That unit is magnetic, has 8/32 cabinet threads, solid otherwise and the cage appears 3/4 rotated This object would be perfect for 3-D printing.

Anyone have blueprints or designs for a practical, full-size steam engine ?

A groups of friends and I (15 years old) are looking to re-create a steam engine to power a survey (we're thinking something along the lines of a steam-punk carriage powered by this steam engine)  we are designing. It does not have to be fast or very complex, just something to propel our vehicle forward. It must, though, be large enough to push at least three hundred pounds and operate for a good amount of time without needing to be refueled or tended to. After searching Instructables, I have found a ton of good steam engines, but they're all mini or meant for demonstrations. We need plans or ideas for a real, full-scale, functioning engine. Any advice, plans, or ideas someone has would be greatly appreciated!!!! Thank you all for your help, Carlinc
