Build Your Own Tiny Taxis Helmet
You are invited to a cosplay party and you don't know as which character to dress up? It's Carneval or Halloween and you quickly need a costume? You lost your hat and you are looking for a unique replacement? Then build your own Tiny Taxis helmet! Here are the instructions on how to build one for 5 € (or less) in half an hour (or 5 minutes more if you are a developer who is not used to build things in real life). You just need some colored paper, a box, a printer, scissors and some glue.
Step 1: Get a box of the hat size you like, e.g. from a package of cereals or some package delivery. Close all lids with glue. Cut a circular opening on the bottom side of the box and enlarge it till it fits on your head. Pro-tip: You can use some rolled newspaper pages to glue a somewhat elastic filler around the opening in case it is too large and the box does not fit well on your head.
Step 2: Download the design pages and print them on colored paper (e.g. yellow or orange).
Step 3: Glue the paper on the box. The lights go on the front of the box, the logo on the sides, the QR code on the back and the bar on top. You might have to shorten some of the paper sheets or use additional colored paper sheets depending on the size of your box. Pro-tip: If your box is larger than the printed out papers, first glue on additional background paper and then the printouts.
Step 4: Play a round of Tiny Taxis to get into the right taxi driving feeling and you are done!
