Back to the Future Mind Reading Hat

I have a scientific background and since I remember I was into sci-fi too. Few years ago, I have discovered another passion which is 3D printing. With time I have learnt to design and build my own printers and then I started to learn CAD design. Couple years ago I found out about Fusion 360 and I fall in love instantly. I’m still a beginner and I have a lot to learn, but Fusion 360 allowed me to recreate props from my favorite movies.
In this instructables I will show you how I designed and 3D printed mind reading helmet from classic sci-fi trilogy ‘Back to the Future’
