Live your life in slow motion with the Decelerator Helmet
German artist Lorenz Potthast has developed an experimental helmet that allows users to perceive their surroundings in slow motion. Known as the Decelerator Helmet, Potthast’s apparatus is a reflective aluminum sphere that completely covers a user’s head. The outside world is viewable only through an interior head-mounted display placed directly in front of a user’s eyes, which beams video captured by a camera attached to the front of the helmet. Users can control the speed of this video using a handheld, semi-spherical remote, allowing them to slow down the world as they see fit.
