Professor August Musger (February 10, 1868 – October 30, 1929) was an Austrian priest and physicist[1] who is best remembered for his invention of slow motion.


Musger invented the slow motion technique using a mirrored drum as a synchronizing mechanism. The device he used was patented in 1904 and was first presented in Graz, Styria in 1907 using a projector made by K. Löffler, owner of a cinema.[2]
