So, I had this idea. The thought of it made me laugh. The sight of it makes everyone laugh. Mission accomplished.
Dudecraft's Disco Bike Helmet from Paul Overton on Vimeo.
Sometimes you have to just do something stupid for the good of mankind. I chose to make the unsafest safety helmet in history. Not only did I cover my helmet with shiny shards of glass, but I also decided to put a 6" carriage bolt, smack in the middle of my skull. Okay, so that part isn't so genius, but a disco ball helmet? C'mon, that's pretty funny, right?
As far as the build goes, as you can see, I used stuff that is all available from your local hardware store, except for the roller skate wheel. I stole that from a small, unsupervised child.
Please bear in mind, this is only the prototype. I ran out of tiles early on and couldn't finish the whole helmet. Also, the whole contraption is butt ugly. Keep an eye out for a prettier version in the future. Oh, and if there are any electrical geniuses out there who can figure out how to have the wind generate power for the lights, hit me up and let's collaborate!
