Deadmau5 LED head replica at comic con

Late last year I was contacted by a Deadmau5 fan and commissioned to build a replica of the Mau5 LED head used on tour and on the MTV video music awards. The finished project just debuted at Comic Con 2011 this weekend. Unfortunately I can't post or say much about this project.  Here are just a few build pics.

Also enjoy a few stats about the head and some photos taken at Comic Con below.  Animations seen at Comic Con were created by Chase Levin and ThinkMotion.

  • Completely wireless, no external components
  • Powered by Lithium Polymer batteries (2 hour run-time per set)
  • 24 FPS playback
