The Deadmau5 mouse head helmet has to be tempting for anyone who likes to make stuff and program electronics. It might not be the easiest project, but the build would definitely be good practice. YouTube user Jason Ware tackled the helmet for Halloween and documented the materials and some of the process. He used a ” 7×16 LED matrix controlled with Arduino SPI serial interface.” He programmed 500 lines of Arduino code, used 118 LEDs, 7 feet EL wire, and more. Watch the video below for more information.
Bonus: Check out the inside of the actual Deadmau5 helmet:
