Life-Sized Lego Space Helmet, Where Have You Been All My Life?
Designer Jonathan Robson has likely made the dreams of many of people come true with his life-size, wearable version of the iconic Lego space helmet. Long have Lego enthusiast fretted about the perfect headwear for assembling a vintage Blacktron Aerial Intruder and now, finally, they can rest easy. Though I would make an impassioned argument that this fantastic head covering should be worn for all occasions — work, play, weddings, funerals, first dates. If people can’t handle my Lego love, then they’re not people I want to be around.
Oh, right, and there’s something about Robson’s helmet functions as an player for digital audio books and syncs up to specially made “Audiocomics” to help teach reading. There’s even a USB plug in the back to load up the stories. And yeah, yeah, yeah Robson was motivated by a deep personal admiration for Lego, saying:
When I was young I played with LEGO a lot and all I used to read was the comics in LEGO magazines, I’d like to give something back to them as they helped me learn to read.
The point is this thing is amazing, and should adopted as casual wear as quickly as possible. If you’re not convinced, read on below and see some shots of the helmet in action on some very, very lucky child.
