LED Astronaut Helmet: It’s Spaaaace Magic!
December 1st, 2012
While most of us will never get the chance to travel to far-off planets in a spaceship, that doesn’t mean we can’t fantasize about space travel right here on planet Earth. If you’ve always wanted to be an astronaut, then you might want to order your very own space helmet.
This lightweight acrylic space helmet looks extra fine thanks to the bright LED lighting inside of it. These light strips can even change colors, thanks to the included remote control. While it might not keep you breathing in the vacuum of space, it is perfect for a night out on the town (assuming you go to raves or costume parties regularly.)
Adding to the effect are light-reactive fluorescent visor pivots, which glow even brighter when the LEDs are illuminated. You can expect at least 8 hours of light on a single charge of the included battery pack, so your mission flight can last all through the night.
Artist Jenn Mann made the first of these helmets for a David Bowie-themed party, but is now making them custom for those who want to join her on her journey through space.
The LED space helmet sells for $182(USD), which I think is a steal for something that looks this awesome.
