Show and Tell: Jennifer Mann’s LED Space Helmet!

Adam shares a new helmet recently added to his collection of replica space gear–a wonderful light-up space helmet from maker Jennifer Mann. Adam shows off the attention to detail and care Jennifer put into designing this piece, which is fitted with an anticulating visor, LED lights, and fashioned out of an off-the-shelf 14-inch acrylic lighting globe! And the best part is that Jennifer has shared instructions for making your own LED space helmet in her updated Instructables guide: https://www.instructables.com/LED-Space-Helmet-2019-Update/

  1. After seeing this helmet I started one. It is great, I just love it! I’ve done it all except for the painting, I’m waiting for a warm day to complete it.
    Nice project, well written and planned out. All the parts and suppliers are called out.
    Cutting the ball is easy but the Rotozip is a little hard on the material. It leaves a rough edge, but in the end that edge is covered with a silver edge-guard. There must be a bit for the Rotozip that would leave a cleaner edge in plastic.
