The LED helmets used as props by electro-pop band, Daft Punk, cost $ 14,000 to make. LED Effects, the company which made the helmets, later put them on sale for a jaw-dropping $ 65,000.
Casey Pugh made his own low-cost replica of the helmet for Halloween, this year. He used a second hand motorcycle helmet, and an Arduino board to program and control the LEDs.
He also made a short time-lapse video documenting the entire process. Watch it after the jump.
