Introduction: Knex Space Helmet
I made this a while back and decided to post it now. It's a pretty awesome looking helmet of Knex, able to be worn. I envision it as a way to protect the sensitive areas of the head (like the eyes) in Knex Wars. It could save some of us from many painful moments!
Also, it just gives an impressive effect!
It has a basic frame around which the sides are built. The eye-slits, though they may appear restricting from the outside, give a surprisingly good field of view; it doesn't obstruct the vision of the wearer too much while protecting their eyes from stray Knex rods aimed a bit too high...
A note to those who wish to build such a helmet themselves: not everyone's head is the same size. Thus, feel free to modify the dimensions to comfortably fit you. And, of course, you can change the design to create a different style or look. So much freedom for options, and yet I haven't seen many Knex helmets yet! I hope this changes things. And whenever you make a helmet, always, always remember to make sure you can breathe through it easily. Enjoy!
