Hey everyone,

I'm Installation00, the Halo Youtuber. I'm new to the 405th but been keeping an eye on events here for a long time. Just thought I'd pop on and share a little progress update.

For those who don't know, I've been putting effort into creating Halo technology in real life. I have been researching and developing for around 15 years in between gaining my qualifications and working in Industry, before becoming a full-time Tuber/Company Director, and have been privately funding it up until April when I started a gofundme.

Well today's post is just to share that I am currently in the thick of integrating the Microsoft Hololens 2 into the Halo Infinite MJOLNIR GEN III Helmet, along with a visor, breathing systems, ventilation systems, hermetic seals, padding, and audio array systems to make it as close to the functionality of the actual helmet as possible. I am currently 3D printing the GEN III helmet to start the job of fitting all of this inside the helmet.

The Hololens seems like it was almost built to fit inside the helmet, and the HUD systems like the targeting, HUD overlay, Smart Scope and the like are all attainable goals on the Hololens. After I am happy with how it all fits, I have an ex-colleague who is able to Print the helmet in Titanium via a DMLS 3D Printer, the end goal being that it will be, at least as far as I am aware, the only fully functional Titanium MJOLNIR Helmet in existence.

My question is, would you like to be kept in the loop on progress as it continues?

It's been a while since I updated you all on this, so for risk of reviving what may be considered a dead thread;
HelmetFrame.png
This shows the frame and shell of the Helmet in Autocad, with a Hololens Model for scaling purposes, as we used the Hololens 2 for the HUD Systems.
HelmetRender2.png HelmetRender4.png
These are high-quality renders of the inner frame, hololens and shell, as well as a fully compiled model version to check for fit and spacing.

This was the first fully assembled Frame with Hololens and some of the Electronics in situ. This frame was printed in a Resin 3D Printer.
20220531_201813.jpg
This shows most of the shell, that I had resin 3D printed in smaller components and bonded together.
20220607_215258.jpg
This shows it fully assembled and prepped for base coat, painting and weathering.

The first coats of green paint are applied.
1666098283404.jpg
The final weathered and assembled helmet. At this stage the HUD systems were fully operational and highly immersive.

And finally, at this stage, we made minor amendments to the frame to increase compressive strength. Then we exported them all ready for 3D printing in Aluminium 7075 (Aircraft Grade Aluminium), which has now been printed and is being shipped to me as we speak!
I hope this isn't considered Spam, but that's the latest. There are tons more going on, which will be covered in an upcoming update video and I'll try to remember to post more often here.

Much Love,

Much Love,
This is for sure the most complex and high-tech build I've ever seen! I'm sure you hear this all the time but you've done a fantastic job making this project!
