The Time-Slowing Helmet is a sentient, robotic helmet from the 2017 Continuum.
Created by Gyro Gearloose in 2018 in an effort to accelerate his thought process to be able to think up an invention with which to impress the Buzzard Brothers, the Time-Slowing Helmet accelerates brain function, making minutes seem like hours for the wearer. Gearloose belatedly realized the Helmet was, on its own, a safe and marketable invention to show the Buzzards, and saved his job off of it.
Just after the Board of Director departed, however, the Time-Slowing Helmet revealed itself to have turned sentient and evil, warning the "carbon-based lifeforms" Scrooge & Gyro that "the Rise of the Machine" was "upon them". Scrooge vowed not to mention it to the Buzzards, and the two set out to foil the Helmet.
