Daft Punk's Random Access Memories has been one of the most heavily hyped albums of the year. For die-hard fans, though, the holy grail isn't an album but a faithful recreation of a Daft Punk helmet. The Wall Street Journal dives into the world of people who have expertly reverse-engineered and manufactured unofficial helmets that sell for anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. "People are so desperate for these things that they are willing to wear everyday household buckets," says Daft Punk fansite founder Kevin Sanders. Well-made versions of the futuristic helmets, of course, have nothing everyday about them.
