In the early days, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter -- aka the robots that make up the EDM pioneers we know as Daft Punk -- appeared on a smattering of press photos and even a magazine cover with their faces exposed, but by the time they released Homework, they had completely retreated behind the robot helmets. There's no doubt the press shy duo is happy with the decision, considering their auspicious return to the public eye in the wake of "Get Lucky," the debut single from their first album in eight years. As obsessives chart Daft Punk's sound over the years, they'll also have the opportunity to examine the evolution of their signature helmets, thanks to this poster created a while back by Agent Raybans that was posted on The Daft Club fansite.
