Macintosh Plus + iPad = Daft Punk alternative helmet [Video]

Daft Punk is well known for the eye-catching helmets that have become synonymous with the group itself, but that's not to say a keen DIYer with an iPad and a hot-glue gun can't compete. DJ Kid Chameleon has given up face recognition in favor of a home-made helmet that mixes a classic Macintosh Plus with an iPad faceplate and sound-activated LEDs.

Video after the cut

A custom video on the iPad, designed to be played in time with other A/V content at the set, was triggered by a Bluetooth keyboard, and the rest you can see in the video below. It's the handiwork of Terrence Scoville, initially started as a sculpture class project, and now co-opted into musical duties.
