The Section 8 helmet was a helmet used by Section 8. It was developed by Foaly, and therefore contains many similarities to the LEP helmet. The main differences are that the Section 8 helmet has a system of electrically charged pellets that allows it to bounce about, or in the case of a commander's helmet jet thrusters to allow it to fly. It can be remote controlled, it has an Omni sensor (although it is never stated that the LEP helmet doesn't have one), a built in laser and a "revolutionary cooling system" (which can still get warm if the laser is used vigorously in a short period of time, as in the Lost Colony where Holly is escaping from Paradizo Chateau with Foaly constantly firing the laser, resulting in Holly feeling heat atop her head).
