Designed by German artist Lorenz Potthast, the Decelerator Helmet, an interactive wearable, falls into the camp of the Slow Movement. As a critical response to our cultural obsession with speed, the Decelerator Helmet alters the wearers perception of the world by visually slowing down reality in real time. The helmet decouples the user’s perception from natural timing, allowing the user to experience time differently and the world in slow motion. Using a small, handheld controller, the user is given ultimate control of the experience by being able to slow down or speed up the elapsing of time.
