LED's on helmet Answered

I was thinking on building a helmet like the ones that are on this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgfcToAjfdc

I can do the electronics, but I have no idea on where or how to get a helmet similar to the one on the video that has a visor large enough for an LED matrix.

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

Thanks

There are also many similar motorcycle helmets.

All modifications will be purely cosmetic, but I still can't picture how to make LED backlight without interfering with your vision.

That is an old high altitude flight helmet. The ring at the bottom is a locking mechanism to attach it to the suit. These things tend to be several hundred dollars on ebay. You may be able to find a cheap replica or prop for less but it can still cost a bit. Your best option may be going with an old motor cycle helmet.

Yes, I figured a space helmet or a replica would be expensive.

I was thinking something like this might work:
