Daft Punk\’s helmets – the Star Wars connection

||

The LA Times has an interview up with Daft Punk about creating the score for Tron: Legacy. It’s really interesting, but even cooler is when they were asked about their famous robot helmets and if they were inspired by Tron:

So it had to be asked: Are those robot helmets (without which Daft Punk is never photographed) an implicit homage to “Tron”?

“It’s closer to a ‘Star Wars’ vibe,” said De Homem-Christo. “It’s very ’70s, but very relevant to me. We are robots, because we think it fits.”

So there you have it, Daft Punks signature look was inspired by Star Wars.
