First post here not really a new project but shows some of the work flow.
It is a BASE jump/ Swooping helmet.
All carbon fiber made it has air intakes on the sides help the user measure the speed through the sound of the wind.
here you can check some of the steps of the project.
Hope you guys enjoy.
Looking forward to hear the comments,
Yeah I think the same, love the carbon, but it is such a common material in the Skydive world that people end up going for the colored ones. And usually manufacturers allow the costumers to pic the color.
You have no idea how many times I asked myself the same question during the start of this project! LoL
There are a few safety issues, departure/ mid air / landing collisions. Sometimes one can get hurt with the canopy’s cables (if it’s not properly packed) and you can attache an audible altimeter inside the helmet that beeps when you are on the right high to deploy your parachute.
A non safety but important reason is hat you can place your cameras on the helmet…
But yeah, you are still jumping out of a plane, so if something goes wrong with your rig it will not be a helmet that will do the trick.
This is really cool. I like how the project is presented, sketches, photos, etc. I’m a student too, and was just curious about how your helmet form changed between the illustrator/photoshop renderings to the Alias rendering? Was it a stroke of inspiration while working in Alias? Or, was that from feedback with the client?
Thank all you guys for the interest and feedback once more.
The design language was written together with the design process. So basically, this helmet is a first sight of the design process applied to a product
After a lot of studies and researches on the market and users we decided to go for the chosen concept.
But there is always the personal taste and style of the client and designer not to mention the productions factors.
