In this project we'll build the iconic SpaceX helmet! This helmet features an articulating top half that allows the wearer to lift the visor up.

NeoPixel LEDs illuminate the face with motion activated animations!

We can customize motions to change different colors, animations or even play sounds!

This large helmet is 3d printed in several pieces and assembled to complete the perfect astronaut costume!

The model includes a buck to vacuum form the visor or 3d print a voronoi pattern visor, perfect for warm environments!   

Powered by the Circuit Playground Express, program animations may be changed quickly with motion gestures, sound effects and more with all the built in sensors!

Use CircuitPython, Makecode or even Arduino to easily update your own SpaceX helmet!

Easy to reach USB ports and a Slide Switch allow you to recharge the battery or reprogram the Circuit Playground Express.
