Since a universal remote to control time doesn't exist, or at least hasn't been discovered yet, the Decelerator Helmet is second best. The wearer is essentially able to live out a day in slow motion if it pleases him or her. The Decelerator Helmet covers the person's entire head, forcing them to view the outside world via an interior display that plays back video. An accompanying handheld, semi-spherical remote allows them to control the speed of that video stream.

Created by German artist Lorenz Potthast, the Decelerator Helmet is just as captivating for passersby as it is for users. It takes on the form of a reflective aluminum sphere that looks incredibly futuristic. Aside from looks, the Decelerator Helmet allows people to become aware of their own time.
