This video documents about 4 months of work in creating a replica of Thomas Bangalter's helmet from Daft Punk. The piece has over 350 LEDs, can run over 4 hours on a single charge, and the matrix is capable of being updated on-the-fly with a custom programmed iOS app.
Also, for those that will ask, visibility is actually quite good!
Programming for the helmet code was done by James Moss.

THIS PROJECT WAS A ONE-OFF. I AM NOT TAKING ORDERS FOR DUPLICATES.
