Did you ever want to know the story behind Daft Punk's helmets? This short documentary made by Mixmag tells the whole story through the eyes of special effects guru Tony Gardner. The feature even shows original drafts of some of the prototypes and explains the concept and history of the iconic costumes. Here's some tidbits: The helmets were inspired by the iconic sci-fi film The Day the Earth Stood Still and the designers reached out to the creator of the jumbotron to get the technology to make them work. Crazy.
