Musger, August, b. Eisenerz (Styria), Feb. 10, 1868, d. Graz (Styria), Oct. 30, 1929, physicist; invented the slow motion technique using a mirrored drum as a synchronizing mechanism. The new device was patented in 1904 and was presented in Graz on July 7, 1907 for the first time, using a projector made by K. Löffler, owner of a cinema. No commercial use was made of the new invention. In 1914 the Erneman Company introduced a slow-motion device in Dresden without mentioning M. In 1916 another canotrically synchronized slow motion device using mirrored rings was patented.
