Kid Chameleon’s Mac Helmut

Kid Chameleon Intro from Phoenix 01/06/11 from Matt Loniero on Vimeo.

Here is a video of LA based Kid Chameleon (Matt Loniero) and his home brew helmet created out of an old Mac Plus. Who needs Daft Punk now? His friend Terrence Scoville pieced the headgear together.

“The helmet is the body of an old Apple computer, but the screen is replaced by an iPad, which fits in a slot that was cut into either side of the screen area. Inside, there is support for comfort.n LED patch that is reactive to sound is attached and its connections are all contained within the body of the computer and fed through the floppy disk drive out of the front.” – Matt Loniero

The Tell Tale Beat

In the late 80s when I lived with my mother I learned the craft of making music in the basement. Mostly I just blasted endless loops of kick drums. I don’t know how she put up with it. To this day she says she still hears me down there.
