Droolworthy Animatronic Stargate Horus Helmet - ZVEIL

Droolworthy Animatronic Stargate Horus Helmet

by Elliot Williams July 30, 2016

It’s incredibly likely that, unless you own one of the original movie props, your Stargate Horus helmet is not as cool as [jeromekelty]’s. We say this with some confidence because [jerome] got access to the original molds and put in an incredible amount of time on the animatronics. (See his latest video embedded below.)

Surprisingly, a number of the parts for this amazing piece were bought off the shelf. The irises that open and close they eyes, for instance, were bought on eBay. This is not to downplay the amount of custom design, though. The mechanism that moves the feathers is a sight to see, and there’s a lot of hand-machined metal holding it all together. But the payoff is watching the thing move under remote control. The eye dimming and closing, combined with the head movements, make it look almost alive.

This isn’t [jerome]’s first Stargate-Horus-Helmet rodeo. He made an Arduino-powered one back in 2011. We can’t wait to see what’s next.
