For the longest time, the coolest headgear out of the world of music had to be Daft Punk’s iconic helmets, and Deadmau5’s light up mouse head. But earlier this year, Jay Kay of Jamiroquai donned a fantastic helmet not just loaded up with colorful LEDs, but motorized pieces which could change form.

Now, the guys over at 10KLumen are showing off an amazing replica build of the helmet, which looks exactly like the one in the Automaton music video. It lights up, changes colors, and even has servos to move the bits of spiky, translucent plastic “hair” into different positions. I especially dig the illuminated “eyebrows.” Check it out in action in the video below:

Here’s the original music video for comparison:

It looks pretty darned close to the one in the music video. People are really going to be amazed if you turn up at dance party or a Halloween costume party wearing this thing.

Best of all, you can buy one of these amazing helmet replicas for yourself for $450(USD), which I don’t think is all that expensive given all of the work that must have gone into engineering this thing.
