This is a cool idea and concept, a real life slow motion helmet, called The Decelerator. The Decelerator Helmet is a experimental approach for dealing with our fast moving society. The idea to decouple the personal perception from the natural timing enables the user to become aware of his own time.
How does this work?
In the inside of the helmet the video-signal of a camera is processed by a small computer. The slowed-down images are displayed right before the user’s eyes via a head-mounted display and are simultaneously shown on a monitor on the outside.
The helmet has three different modes which can be selected by a remote control:
In the auto-mode time is slowed down automatically and re-accelerated after a defined interval. The press-mode allows the specific deceleration of time. In the scroll-mode the user can completely control the speed of the elapsing of time.
