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 (and was his first WordPress experiment =)
Recently the Helmet was featured in the neural magazine (print and digital) and in europes biggest computer magazine Computer Bild (print).
Lately it was exhibited at ENTER Festival 6: Biopolis in Prague, Czech Republic and is going to be at Toolkit Festival in Venice, Italy from the 8th to the 11th of may.
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 thoughts and opinions or press material?
