The History Of Daft Punk’s Helmets

Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk were two French guys who wanted to make dance music, and keep all the focus on just that – the music. In order to strip their personalities from the project completely, they linked up with special effects master Tony Gardner to help them design helmets that would that would shield their identities, essentially rendering them robots who make killer shit to dance to.  Mixmag‘s new mini-documentary, Daft Punk: Behind the Helmets is a visual history of the now-infamous headgear, from it’s early iterations with hair, to the ultra-sleek models of 2013. Watch it above. Seriously.
