“Last year when we first saw Jamiroquai’s Automaton video, we were immediately impressed by the helmet that Jay Kay wears in the video. A lot of people asked if we can make a replica. After an assessment, we decided to make the replica. Although we only had a video as a reference after long months of excruciating research and development (We designed the circuit boards on the helmet and the battery pack, developed a customized app, added RF remote system and got molds done) we were able to build a functional helmet with relatively low cost. “ Check out the Jamiroquai video which inspired the Automaton LED helmet.
The LED helmet is now available to back fire Kickstarter with earlybird pledges available from $325 and worldwide shipping expected to take place during March 2019.
