Two decades after their iconic Homework album helped shape dance music as it is today, Daft Punk can most certainly be defined as “legendary.” They remain one of the most talked-about names in music as a whole, and their rare and sporadic activity leaves millions hanging on their every move.

The most dedicated fans with some money to spare now have a chance to own an prime piece of Daft Punk memorabilia: Thomas Bangalter’s old Roland TR-909. This drum machine in particular was the one used in “Revolution 909” and other songs from Homework. Vintage & Analogue Occasion will be auctioning off the item, which will come with the original presets of “Revolution 909,” sweetening the deal to the winning bidder.

Of course, given the legacy behind the synth, it will come at a lofty expense, though no minimum price has yet been set. In their post announcing the auction, Vintage Analogue & Occasion noted, “Needless to say, it’s a collector’s item, so it’s impossible to set a price.”

Defected Records posted a demo of the vintage drum machine earlier this year, which can be seen below.

It wasn’t long ago that some Daft Punk fans improved on Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo’s helmet, crafting an innovative replica that way outperformed even the real thing.

Now, a Redditor named CrazyElectrum has taken it upon himself to replicate Thomas Bangalter’s helmet using 3D printing and a whole lot of circuitry.

From start to finish, the entire project took five weeks and roughly over 140 hours of work, including 72 hours of printing for the helmet’s 26 pieces. Using zip ties, hot glue, and the magical automobile fixall, Bondo, CrazyElectrum was able to join the project’s individual pieces and smooth out the rough plastic for a remarkably clean design. The helmet’s 326 LEDs have 10 programmed displays, and are controlled via bluetooth with a custom Android app for maximum swaggability.
