Guy Creates Working Iron Man Helmet, Now He Just Needs The Rest Of The Suit [Cosplay]


This functioning Iron Man helmet was built by Luis Ernesto Flores Olazo who is working at Fab Lab Lima in Peru. It looks like metal, but it’s mostly made of EVA foam. From Make:

My Ironman helmet was built 80% by hand and 20% with digital fabrication. I had to experiment with different materials. I used servomotors, LEDs, and electronics. The process basically consisted in making the 2D development from a 3D model of the helmet using Pepakura software. Once I got the 2D development I could print it using a traditional 2D paper printer.

He then traced those paper pieces onto the foam before fitting it together like a puzzle and adding the finishing touches to the outside to make it look just like Iron Man’s helmet.

See video of the helmet in action after the break…
