It looks as if that 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 with plutonium that would supply the 1.21 gigawatts of power to the flux capacitor that I’ve saved up for won’t be necessary. Iranian scientist Ali Razeghi is the managing director of Iran’s Centre for Strategic Inventions says that he created a time machine called “The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine”. Well, it’s KINDA of a time machine because it’s only limited to taking you to the future. Well, it won’t actually bring you to the future, per se, but it rather brings the future to you, and Razeghi says that using complex algorithms in his invention can “predict five to eight years of the future life of any individual, with 98 percent accuracy”. Hmmm…
To be more specific, Razeghi stated that:
“My invention easily fits into the size of a personal computer case and can predict details of the next 5-8 years of the life of its users. It will not take you into the future, it will bring the future to you.”
While it may not seem like the classic interpretation of what a time machine “is” or does, this is still an interesting breakthrough. The argument can be made that it’s more like fortune telling, crystal ball-watching (that sounds odd…) and tarot card-reading, but like most — if not everything — developed in the science and technological realm is a step before becoming a more evolved, upgraded and advanced version of itself.
Razeghi is only 27 years old, and he has invented 179 other inventions in his life, and this particular time machine has been a project 10 years in the making; so he was 17-year-old kid when he began developing this project. However, Razeghi will not be releasing a prototype of his time machine anytime soon saying:
“The reason that we are not launching our prototype at this stage is that the Chinese will steal the idea and produce it in millions overnight.”
Oh well, at least I still have that DeLorean cash saved up!
