In this DIY project, we’ll show you how to 3D print a Daft Punk helmet with Bluetooth controlled NeoPixel LEDs! You can use your smartphone or smartwatch to trigger animations and even change the colors of the NeoPixel LEDs with the Adafruit Bluefruit LE Connect app on Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
In a previous project we made Guy-Manuel’s helmet and 3D printed it in just one piece. This time around we wanted to make Thomas Bangalter’s helmet but this time we wanted to make it lighter, have the ability to see through it and even apply some finishing techniques.
