The Decelerator Helmet offers the user a perception of the world in slow motion. It is a experimental approach for thinking about our increasingly fast moving, globalized society.
The Decelerator Helmet was developed by Lorenz Potthast at the University of the Arts in Bremen and this website documents the project.
Lately the project won the Innovation by Design Award in the Category Concepts, was shown at Explosive Theater Festival and in the Talkshow Ansichten.
Next dates are at the World Summit on Inovation and Entepreneurship and Imagine Science Film Festival in New York.
Here is a little cooperation with filmmaker Mark Slutsky who made the fabulous short movie The Decelerators that shows the helmet in the streets of New York.
Do you want to know something about the overall concept, the process of developing the helmet or the technical background? Or are you more interested in speculative implications of the idea, peoples reactions or press material?
