Great presentation!

This is the best written and most thoroughly analyzed project I've seen in this series. I'm comparing that to the college projects and the senior engineers that have presented on here! Great job! You'll be a major asset to some big corp someday, or blaze your own trail of success!

You will want to check out a blog I've been following for years.
Starting as a 'simple' hobbiest, and now having graduated to making enough money building replica gadgets as a professional Prop creator;
http://volpinprops.blogspot.com/2010/07/daft-punk-final.html

Tends to include complete parts, manufacturing methods, photos, and electronics information on nearly all of this projects, including his Daft Punk replica helmets (one is nearly identical to the original that this entry was emulating).

I agree with your analysis. Not only did the project look like fun to build, the creator seemed very bright and charming. I enjoy these things that are built just for the heck of it and the builder does not take him/herself too seriously.
